WE WILL PLAN AND DESIGN THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT IN A WAY THAT PROMOTES THE WELL-BEING OF OUR PLANET, OUR COMMUNITIES AND OUR INDIVIDUAL LIVES

In seeking to fulfill this mission, our team has come together to participate in education, advocacy, and design excellence. As a company committee, it is a place for us to come together to share interests in the design field, natural world, and social culture. Relying on evidence-based information, we seek to disseminate vital information about our environment and society. Using this perspective, we strive as an office to act responsibly regarding our everyday operations, pursuit of projects, and support of other organizations with missions like our own.

SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

2017-08-climate-data

As part of OHPD’s commitment to the natural and built environment, we stay abreast of news and developments on our climate. During our monthly office-wide ECOh meetings, current developments for a sustainable future are discussed, as well as brainstorming ways that we can make a positive impact in the work field and in our individual lives.

The number you see pictured above represents an approximate amount of carbon in parts per million (PPM) in our planet’s atmosphere. This amount has been quickly rising since the beginning of the industrial revolution and is continuing to rise today. 350 PPM is considered to be a “safe” level of carbon dioxide. This number serves as a reminder that we must do everything within our power to steward the only environment  in which we can live. Visit co2.earth to find out the current amount of carbon in the earth’s atmosphere.
