The 2030 Districts Network

Leading the effort to create a new model for
urban sustainability and shared economic growth

We are a global network of districts committed to making
meaningful changes within cities that address climate change

Linked In A Powerful Network

The 2030 Districts Network was established to lead the effort to help newly forming Districts and to coordinate existing District resources and collaborations in cities across the United States.

Our objective is for 2030 District members and partners to have equal access to the support and resources needed to reduce emissions in entire built environment by 50-65% by 2030 and reach zero emissions by 2040

2030 Districts are rapidly emerging as a new model for urban sustainability

Our 24 established Districts in North America, made up of more than 1,650 organizational members, have committed over 603 MILLION SQUARE FEET of commercial building space to address climate change

Achieving District-Wide Goals Together

2030 Districts are committed to eliminating emissions:

Building Energy Consumption

to zero

Building Water Consumption

by 50%

Transportation GHG Emissions

to zero

by the year 2040

2030 Districts are meeting incremental reduction targets for new and existing buildings set by the 2030 Challenge for Planning, which was issued by Architecture 2030, a non-profit organization committed to transforming the built environment from a major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions to a central part of the climate crisis.  Districts are also Accelerating to Zero to help the entire built environment reach zero emissions by 2040

Private-Public Partnerships

2030 Districts are organizations led by the private sector, with local building industry leaders uniting around a shared vision for sustainability and economic growth – while aligning with local community groups and government to achieve significant energy, water, and emissions reductions within our commercial cores.

Property owner/manager/developers join a local 2030 District to help them make significant changes to their properties to create reductions necessary to transition to a low carbon economy.

A Successful 2030 District is a PRIVATE-PUBLIC PARTNERSHIP comprised of:

Poperty Owners and Managers

that own, manage, and/or develop real estate within a District boundary

Services Stakeholders

providing related services within a District boundary

Community Stakeholders

representing either non-profit organizations or local government

Leveraging Strategic Partnerships

Energy Assessment
Software Tools
Collective Buying Power
Professional Services
