B&P joins MEP 2040 Challenge


Bridgers & Paxton has signed the Carbon Leadership Forum’s MEP 2040 Challenge, a commitment specific to MEP firms to endeavor to achieve net zero operational carbon by 2030 and embodied carbon by 2040 in their building systems designs.

B&P has been at the forefront of energy efficient and sustainable design practice since 1951. From the world’s first solar office building to the first ground coupled heat pump system in New Mexico, B&P has always recognized the importance of environmental stewardship in the buildings we design.  The MEP 2040 Challenge will add to B&P’s long history of sustainable design milestones.

“The MEP 2040 Challenge is aligned with the climate goals of many of our clients and Building Owners and is the direction of our industry”

MEP 2040 Challenge Commitment

reduce total carbon emissions associated with building systems by 2040

  • ESTABLISH a company plan to reduce, targeting net zero carbon in all projects: operational carbon by 2030 and embodied carbon by 2040.
  • REQUEST low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants when designing systems to reduce or eliminate GHG emissions from refrigerants.
  • REQUEST Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) in project specifications for MEP system components.
  • PARTICIPATE in MEP 2040 forums to share lessons learned and contribute to a growing body of knowledge among peer firms and industry professionals.
“All systems engineers shall advocate for and achieve net zero carbon in their projects:
operational carbon by 2030 and embodied carbon by 2040.”
