The 2030 Palette is an interactive online platform that puts the principles and actions behind low-carbon and resilient built environments at the fingertips of architects, planners and designers worldwide. Architecture 2030 has developed this free online tool as a powerful catalyst for driving broad implementation of the 2030 Challenge and more – ensuring that our buildings and communities consume fewer fossil fuels, compliment and preserve sensitive ecosystems, access site renewable energy resources, and successfully adapt to climatic changes.
After a period of beta testing, the site was launched in full in November, 2013.
