Across the United States, 2030 Districts are being formed to meet the energy, water and vehicle emissions targets called for by Architecture 2030 in the 2030 Challenge for Planning.
Through unique public/private partnerships, property owners and managers are coming together with local governments, businesses, and community stakeholders to provide a business model for urban sustainability through collaboration, leveraged financing, and shared resources. Together, they are developing and implementing creative strategies, best practices, and verification methods for measuring progress towards a common goal.
Established in Seattle, 2030 Districts are at the forefront of regional – and national – grassroots efforts to create strong environmental partnerships, coalitions, and collaboration around ambitious, measurable and achievable goals.
In addition to established districts in Seattle, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and Denver, 2030 Districts are emerging in cities across the U.S. and Canada, including Albuquerque, Ann Arbor, Dallas, Detroit, Ithaca, Portland (ME), San Antonio, San Francisco, Stamford, and Toronto.
