City of Grand Rapids' Zero Carbon Project


The Grand Rapids 2030 District and the City of Grand Rapids have partnered with one goal in mind: to get our beautiful city to zero greenhouse gas emissions. With projects like E.H.Zero, or Policies and Programs for Equitable, Healthy & Zero Carbon Buildings, we are working towards that goal through an equity lens, while asking our community what they want in city-wide carbon policies and programs.

In addition to E.H. Zero, GR2030 is here to provide guidance for cannabis businesses to follow the City’s current zoning, Zero Carbon, and relicensing regulations through cannabis energy management research.
