First announced in August 2012, the Pittsburgh 2030 District is a collaborative, nationally recognized, but local community of high performance buildings in Downtown Pittsburgh. District-wide goals include 50% reductions below national and Districts baselines in energy, water, and transportation emissions by the year 2030, along with carbon neutral new construction by the year 2030.
Convened and facilitated by Green Building Alliance (a Pittsburgh Climate Initiative Partner), the Pittsburgh 2030 District is currently focused on Downtown Pittsburgh, with 65 properties totaling 23.9 million square feet already committed to reaching for District goals. Both the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County are Property Partners of the Pittsburgh 2030 District and partners of the Pittsburgh Climate Initiative.
District Property Partners are solidly supported in their quest by 25 Community and Resource Partners — a long list that includes the Pittsburgh Climate Initiative and its individual Partner organizations (Citizens for Pennsylvania’s Future, Student Conservation Association, and Sustainable Pittsburgh.
