It is said that knowledge is power. Becoming a Cleveland 2030 Property Adopter has provided me with information on my property that has helped us perform better, more efficiently, and to reduce cost. I encourage everyone within the Cleveland 2030 District to join and continue the region’s efforts at world class performance. Easy to do, easy to maintain, and FREE!

AM Higley supports the Cleveland 2030 District as a Professional Partner but we are also a participating Property Adopter. We find the semi annual building performance reports we receive to be very valuable. They provide energy and water use trends and an analysis of our building which tracks how the building has been performing historically and the next best steps for efficiency projects. The reports also measure savings after an energy project has been completed. We post the report’s graphs in our lunchroom to inform and engage employees on our energy and water efficiency progress.
In our last report, one of the graphs reflecting our natural gas usage clearly showed an unknown activity where we were using gas during the summer for the first time in recorded history (an increase in gas use of 35% for the year.) As a result, some easy investigations revealed a change in annual procedures overlooked shutting the gas off as one of our practices. We quickly rectified the situation and made it part of our ongoing annual maintenance program.
We encourage all Downtown and University Circle properties to participate in the 2030 District and help Cleveland become a more sustainable and resilient city.

As part of our focus on sustainability, Cuyahoga County joined the Cleveland 2030 District. They've become a valued partner. The semi-annual building performance reports they prepare allow us to better understand how our buildings are performing and where we should focus our attention for cost saving opportunities. Their Professional Partners provide a wealth of knowledge and discounted services, making it easier for Cleveland buildings to implement efficiency projects. We are fortunate to have an organization like the Cleveland 2030 District helping create an efficient built environment, driving economic development and sustainability in Cleveland.
