Home: Who We Are

Presidential Theme for the 2023-24 ASHRAE Society Year is: “Challenge Accepted: Tackling the Climate Crisis"

By ASHRAE President, Ginger Scoggins

"We are living in a climate emergency. Our desire to be more comfortable has brought us to a place where we need to make uncomfortable decisions. We can accept the challenge of our day regarding the impact of our buildings on the climate crises by equipping our members with the knowledge they need to design and renovate buildings to address the greenhouse gas emissions of our industry ... An understanding of how climate change affects building planning, design, construction and operation is necessary to properly execute projects going forward. ASHRAE is committed to equipping our members with sufficient knowledge and tools, expanding our efforts of designing energy efficient buildings and providing meaningful leadership, action, resources, and advocacy to the global built environment."
