Prospective District Partners


We appreciate your interest in the Pittsburgh 2030 District. This is collaborative effort is working to gain commitment from 100% of property owners and managers in the Pittsburgh 2030 District's boundaries over the next several years.

The Pittsburgh 2030 District is a private sector-led effort utilizing collaboration, incentives, and shared resources to prove the business case for sustainability. Property owners are not required to achieve the goals of the District by legislative mandates, or as individuals. Rather, they do so because full participation in the Pittsburgh 2030 District brings collaboration, shared resources, and financing options that make high-performance buildings the most profitable building type in Pittsburgh. By joining the Pittsburgh 2030 District, your organization expresses commitment to support the district-wide performance goals of the District.

The Pittsburgh 2030 District positions Pittsburgh and its 2030 Partners as leaders in the effort to make Pittsburgh an even better place to live, work, learn, and play.

There are small, medium, and large property owners and managers committed to the District from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors--together representing over 70% of the District's total square footage. An additional cadre of Community and Resource Partners are committed to bringing their expertise, tools, and resources to bear as the District strives to achieve the goals of the 2030 Challenge. See the list of participating Property, Community, and Resource Partners to find out if your neighbor is already a part of the collaborative.
