The Philadelphia 2030 District

49 Million Square Feet of Philadelphia is committed to reducing
the environmental impact of building construction and operations

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

Our goal is to dramatically reduce the environmental impacts of building construction and operations while increasing Philadelphia’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.


If you have a commercial building in Cleveland and want to pledge to reduce your energy use, water use, and transportation emissions, we'd love to hear from you!

Green Building United convenes the Philadelphia 2030 District, a voluntary effort by the owners, managers, and developers of the city’s largest properties to achieve deep reductions in energy use, water use, transportation emissions, and to improve stormwater management.

The initiative seeks to improve efficiency in the building sector in Philadelphia with the goal to lower costs, reduce carbon emissions, improve indoor air quality and tenant comfort, and improve the resiliency of the city’s new and existing building stock.

In December 2021, Green Building United shared the 2020 results for the Philadelphia 2030 District. For more information, please read the full report and learn more about Green Building United and the Philadelphia 2030 District on our website.
