The New York City 2030 District

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 North America.

Our objective is for 2030 District national collaborators and partners to have equal access to the support and resources needed to achieve the 2030 Challenge for Planning targets.

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

Our 23 established districts nationwide, made up of more than 1,400 organizational members, have committed over 540 MILLION SQUARE FEET of commercial building space to address climate change.

Achieving District-Wide Goals Together

2030 Districts are committed to reducing:

Building Energy Consumption

by 50%

Building Water Consumption

by 50%

Transportation GHG Emissions

by 50%

by the year 2030

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.

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
Benchmarking
Guidance
Software Tools
Training
Collective Buying Power
Professional Services
Influence
