The AIA Committee on the Environment’s "MEASURES OF SUSTAINABLE DESIGN”

COTE definition of sustainability and sustainable design:

Sustainability envisions the enduring prosperity of all living things. Sustainable design seeks to create communities, buildings, and products that contribute to this vision.

Design & Innovation – Sustainable design is an inherent aspect of design excellence. Projects should express sustainable design concepts and intentions, and take advantage of innovative programming opportunities.

Regional/Community Design – Sustainable design values the unique cultural and natural character of a given region.

Land Use & Site Ecology – Sustainable design protects and benefits ecosystems, watersheds, and wildlife habitat in the presence of human development.

Bioclimatic Design – Sustainable design conserves resources and maximizes comfort through design adaptations to site-specific and regional climate conditions.

Light & Air – Sustainable design creates comfortable interior environments that provide daylight, views, and fresh air.

Water Cycle – Sustainable design conserves water and protects and improves water quality.

Energy Flows & Energy Future – Sustainable design conserves energy and resources and reduces the carbon footprint while improving building performance and comfort. Sustainable design anticipates future energy sources and needs.

Materials & Construction – Sustainable design includes the informed selection of materials and products to reduce product‐cycle environmental impacts, improve performance, and optimize occupant health and comfort.

Long Life, Loose Fit – Sustainable design seeks to enhance and increase ecological, social, and economic values over time.

Collective Wisdom and Feedback Loops – Sustainable design strategies and best practices evolve over time through documented performance and shared knowledge of lessons learned.
