Ballinger is among over 300 architecture firms to declare a climate, justice, and biodiversity emergency. Environmental stewardship and energy utilization have always been fundamental to our firm and culture. As signatories, we reaffirm those values.

We’re proud to join Architects Declare in committing to:

  • Raising awareness of climate and biodiversity emergencies
  • Addressing the disproportionate impact of these crises on disadvantaged communities
  • Including life cycle costing, whole-life carbon modeling, and post-occupancy evaluation in our work
  • Upgrading existing buildings for extended use
  • Advocating for detailed disclosure of material provenance and environmental impact
  • Investing in research and technology
  • Viewing climate change mitigation, biodiversity protection, and positive social impact as measures of success
