There are many areas of importance for Robert Ivy and the leadership of the American Institute of Architects in the 21st-century including building on the trust the American public has for the group in developing strategies for the future of the nation to combat climate change. As far back as the 150th birthday of the American Institute of Architects in 2007 a public awareness campaign was begun to build on the research being completed toward protecting communities from climate change; the 2030 Sustainability Toolkit was developed to provide information and advice for city mayors and planners who must fight to combat the problems a changing climate can cause for the future. The American Institute of Architects believed its Sustainability Toolkit should not be a complete immersion into the subject of sustainability but start a conversation about building ecologically responsible communities across the U.S.

As the former Editor-in-Chief of the “Architectural Digest”, Robert Ivy has a deep knowledge of almost every subject affecting the lives of architects and their clients. Robert Ivy believes architects have a greater role to play than simply designing interesting buildings and can have a major effect on the effects communities have on the environment around them. One of the main aims of the Sustainability 2030 program has been to inspire local political leaders to make the decision to lower the carbon footprint of their community by 50 percent through the use of innovations in architectural design and city planning.
