Committee on the Environment (COTE)

Active since 1998, the AIA Seattle COTE program focuses on knowledge sharing among professionals in the local sustainable design community. Projects showcased in the biannual What Makes It Green? awards program provide the basis for case study presentations and building tours throughout the year. Other aspects of the program include advocacy at the local, state, and national levels related to energy regulation and codes.
