Corgan Architecture Firm Joins Climate Group, Showcases Wells Fargo Net-Positive Campus in Irving

Global architecture and design firm Corgan has joined the Climate Group, a non-profit organization dedicated to driving climate action. With a coalition of 120 energy-smart businesses, Corgan aims to accelerate energy efficiency and combat climate change. The Climate Group targets key industries, including energy, transport, built environment, and industry, which contribute significantly to carbon emissions.

“The building industry accounts for more than 40% of annual global carbon emissions. As a top architecture firm, we have the opportunity and responsibility to leverage our research in sustainability and our design expertise to reduce operational and embodied carbon emissions in the built environment,” said Varun Kohli, Corgan’s Director of Sustainability and Principal. “Corgan has been working to reduce our environmental impact, be it in our operations or our design work. We love to collaborate with like-minded organizations to share knowledge and support each other for the greater good. We are excited to join the Climate Group’s EP100 and look forward to working with our cohorts globally to advance our efforts to decarbonize the built environment.”

Corgan's sustainability practice, Echo, formalized in 2022, guides projects towards a more sustainable future.

As part of the Climate Group's EP100 program, Corgan aims to improve energy productivity, lower emissions, and enhance competitiveness. This commitment aligns with Corgan's goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025 and its participation in initiatives such as the World Green Building Council’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings and the AIA 2030 Challenge.

Corgan continues to prioritize environmental sustainability, assisting clients in minimizing operational and embodied carbon emissions. By the end of 2024, the firm plans to present its climate action plan and complete carbon accounting for its global operations. Corgan's dedication to sustainability is evident in projects like Wells Fargo’s net-positive campus in Irving, Texas, which generates excess renewable energy beyond building needs.
