The AIACOC Committee on the Environment (COTE) works to advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the profession, the building industry, and the public—design practices that integrate built and natural systems and enhance both the design quality and environmental performance of the built environment. COTE serves as the community and voice, on behalf of and at the direction of the AIACOC Board of Directors, regarding sustainable design.

AIACOC COTE reflects the profession’s commitment to provide healthy and safe environments for people and is dedicated to preserving the earth’s capability of sustaining a shared high quality of life.
