The Network

The vision of the 2030 Districts Network is to establish a global network of thriving high-performance building districts and cities, uniting communities to catalyze transformation in the built environment and its role in mitigating and adapting to climate change.

Each District commits to meeting 50-65% reductions in energy, water, and transportation-related emissions as established by Architecture 2030 in its 2030 Challenge for Planning as seen to the right:

Accelerating to Zero – Beyond 2030

In the fall of 2022, the Network adopted this new goal:

The 2030 Districts Network provides critical leadership and resources to reduce emissions in the entire built environment by 50-65% by 2030 and reach zero emissions by 2040.

The 2030 Districts Network leads building sector efforts to achieve these urgent goals through a just and equitable transition and aligns its goals with current climate science.

The 2030 Districts Network collaborates with its members to drive down energy and water use, building and transportation related emissions and promote healthy buildings. Accelerating to Zero emissions requires energy efficiency, electrification, clean grids, reduced embodied emissions, and advocating for building codes, policies and incentives that promote a resilient and vibrant future for all.

Annual Report

The Network has compiled an annual report to showcase the work which has been done nationally and locally.  The report highlights a variety of successful programs and includes metrics for annual energy savings totaling 30% over baseline which is in line with the stated goal of achieving an energy savings of 35% by the year 2025.  While there is much work to be done, the efforts of the Districts and their members show steady progress.

The Districts

While all Districts strive to achieve the above goals, each District has its own structure.  Some are stand-alone non-profit organizations while others exist as programs of other local non-profit organizations.  To read more about local Districts, see the individual pages for each.  Another great resource is the annual reports provided each year which outline reductions in member buildings, as well as the programs Districts, implement to help members achieve those reductions.  See the Annual Report page for more details.

The 2030 Districts Network is a US-registered 501-c3 non-profit organization that works to help drive reductions in energy, water, and transportation-related emissions from the built environment.

The Network convenes and works closely with the various 2030 Districts around the US and Canada to help provide their members with services that they can implement to make meaningful changes to their real estate.  These efforts are the key to making changes that will address the threat of climate change.

The Network receives funding from several sources including grants and sponsorships. If you are an individual and would like to help support our efforts, please click on the donate form found below.
