About the Toronto 2030 District

The Toronto 2030 District is a private-public initiative committed to achieving a low-carbon future. We are a broad stakeholder network comprised of property owners and managers, tenants, utilities, government, service providers and civil society within downtown Toronto. Our focus is on reducing operational greenhouse gas emissions from buildings. 

The Toronto 2030 District encompasses over 300 million square feet of office, commercial, residential, institutional, and industrial space. The District aims to accelerate the pace of change by recognizing that different buildings have different solutions and that community infrastructure has a large part to play in getting to the solution.

To achieve this, the District acts as a learning and knowledge sharing platform aimed at identifying the individual and collaborative opportunities for most effective action. It also seeks context-based solutions that help property owners and managers realize a competitive advantage in cost, resilience, and reputation.

The Toronto 2030 District is part of a member network of 22 Districts in cities across North America working to achieve the Architecture 2030 Challenge and meet the Paris Climate Agreement targets.

Our Pathways Project

The Toronto 2030 District is in the proceess of developing our Pathways Project which consists of research and engagement activities to define viable pathways to achieving a zero-carbon District by 2050. The outcomes are intended to be an informed stakeholder community that is better able to design their own decarbonization roadmaps and a set of pilot projects that will test leading edge approaches to collaborative solutions and inspire individual action.

What's Next

  • Engage The District Stakeholders – stay tuned for upcoming events that explore sector-specific solutions to reaching our climate change targets.
  • Develop Pilot Projects - we will work with our partners to identify and implement viable pilot projects to test solutions and educate stakeholders.
  • Enhance Our Data – Using the Toronto 2030 Platform, we will continue to develop new insights into building performance in the Toronto 2030 District. 

Our Goals

  • Existing buildings:
    • Reduce building-related GHG emissions in alignment with Canada's national commitments
  • New construction:
    • Net zero buildings by 2030
