The Ann Arbor 2030 District

19 Million Square Feet of Ann Arbor is committed to reducing
the environmental impact of building construction and operations.

Accelerating to Zero

The Ann Arbor District is a public-private-nonprofit collaborative working to create a groundbreaking high-performance building district in downtown Ann Arbor.

Our goal is to dramatically reduce the environmental impacts of building construction and operations while increasing Ann Arbor’s competitiveness in the business environment and increasing owners’ return on investment.

We are proud to be one of the twenty-three established districts operating within The 2030 Districts Network.

What impact do buildings have on carbon emissions?

Emissions from buildings account for over 40% of global carbon emissions. By reducing building emissions through energy efficiency and renewable energy installation, we can get that much closer towards reaching our goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2030 – the only way to avoid a 1.5 degree warming future.

The 2030 district Houses of Worship group provides resources to create a Green Task Force for your congregation!
