The Pittsburgh 2030 District

A strategic initiative of Green Building Alliance (GBA), the Pittsburgh 2030 District is the largest 2030 District and is a robust network of over 540 properties totaling over 86 million square feet.


Linked In A Powerful Network

As a founding member of the 2030 Districts Network, the Pittsburgh 2030 District provides property partners access to the support and resources needed to reduce emissions, energy demand, and water use, while improving indoor air quality.

Achieving District-Wide Goals Together

2030 Districts are committed to:

50 to 65% reduction in carbon emissions in the built environment

by 2030

Zero carbon

by 2040

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 solution.

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:

Property 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
Software Tools
Collective Buying Power
Professional Services
