Climate Priority Setting for 2023

COTE legislative priority setting 2023

Join AIA Baltimore’s Committee on the Environment, AIA Maryland, and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for a structured conversation on 2023 legislative priorities around climate action. We’ll discuss the wins of 2022, and the opportunities for 2023. Our conversation will include:

  • changes the Climate Solutions Now act made to Maryland’s climate priorities
  • ideas that were not included in the final Climate Solutions Now act, and what potential changes could be made in 2023
  • other building performance and climate focused bills that will be a priority this session
  • the legislative process and key delegates and senators that may be instrumental in passing climate-focused legislation

After the discussion, stay for a tour of the Phillip Merrill Education Center, headquarters of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The center, which opened in 2001, is one of the world’s most energy-efficient buildings, incorporating natural elements into a fully functional workplace which has minimal impact on its Bay- and creek-front surroundings. The first building to receive the U.S. Green Building Council’s Platinum rating for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), the center and its sophisticated systems have won international acclaim as a model for energy efficiency, high performance, and water conservation. Our tour will focus on the MEP systems and talk about building electrification and water reduction and how these 20-year-old systems are performing.
