The NYC 2030 District is a private / public partnership of property owners and community stakeholders which will leverage financing, public support and collaborative action to spur sustainable innovation and progress. NYC 2030 District is established as a high-performance sustainability district in Downtown Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan. NYC 2030 District has 21 Million square feet of properties pledged to the partnership including the Brooklyn Navy Yard, The New School, Pratt Institute, Time Equities, Greenthal Management and Clinton Hill Coops.
The NYC 2030 District Committee is being developed through a process of consultation and engagement with local businesses, community organizations, civic institutions, and elected officials. The district is located in an area comprising dense NYC commercial cores with adjacent residential, institutional and industrial zones. We propose to include affiliated areas as satellites to the NYC 2030 District in order to reach a diversity of populations and income groups; to engage community-based non-profit organizations; and to promote a broad impact of innovation and wide implementation of both sustainability and resilience goals.
We believe that the NYC 2030 District can provide a vehicle for advancing the objectives of NYC’s 80 X 50 commitment and Climate Mobilization Act through adoption of sustainable behaviors and best practices, and promotion of constructively competitive interaction between stakeholders. The district is building a living laboratory to demonstrate and test innovative approaches to aggregated energy efficiency projects, cooperative renewable and distributed energy generation, accessible off-grid emergency powerand integration of sustainable energy technologies and design strategies. The district will propose silo-busting pilot projects to achieve common solutions to the challenges of sustainability, resilience and equity.
