Stanton Williams has joined fellow RIBA Stirling Prize winning practices in an open letter declaring a climate and biodiversity emergency and calling the architecture and construction industry for a commitment to positive action.
"The twin crises of climate breakdown and biodiversity loss are the most serious issue of our time. Buildings and construction play a major part, accounting for nearly 40% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst also having a significant impact on our natural habitats. For everyone working in the construction industry, meeting the needs of our society without breaching the earth’s ecological boundaries will demand a paradigm shift in our behaviour," reads the declaration.
