The Seattle 2030 District

59 Million Square Feet of Seattle is committed to reducing
the environmental impact of building construction and operations

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

Our goal is to dramatically reduce the environmental impacts of building construction and operations while increasing Seattle’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 Seattle and want to pledge to reduce your energy use, water use, and transportation emissions, we'd love to hear from you!

The Seattle 2030 District works to break down market barriers to building efficiency in an effort to make Seattle and the surrounding communities more sustainable, and contribute to the region’s environmental resilience, livability, and affordability.

We are a membership organization of real estate owners, architects, engineers, contractors, and community partners that bridges the gap between the private and public sector to reduce the environmental impacts of buildings in Seattle. Our 140 members have made the commitment to significantly reduce water and energy use, as well as pollution from stormwater and carbon emissions from transportation by the year 2030.

With Architecture 2030 Challenge for Planning providing our performance goals, we seek to develop realistic, measurable, and innovative strategies to reduce adverse impacts of on-site construction and operations. We work with stakeholders managing over 250 buildings within our District boundary to create partnerships, implement community-level solutions, and advocate for policies that will make Seattle a global model for sustainability
