SOM has made the 2024 list of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in Architecture! The annual list chronicles innovations across the world that are transforming business and society, covering a range of sectors from space and robotics to sustainability and agriculture. This year, Fast Company selected SOM as the fifth most innovative architecture firm, citing our Whole Life Carbon Accounting service as part of a new frontier in “cutting down the environmental impact of a building throughout its entire life span, from the production of its building materials to its construction to its many years of operation and even to its eventual demolition.”
Reporting for Fast Company, Nate Berg writes, “The global architecture firm SOM has led the way in incorporating this long-term thinking into its design work. In June, it launched Whole Life Carbon Accounting, a service that evaluates, measures, and seeks to reduce carbon emissions through the full life cycle of a building.” Learn more about our Whole Life Carbon Accounting service and how it can meet a project’s decarbonization goals below.
