Announced for the first time on August 21, 2012, the Pittsburgh 2030 District has been officially established with Founding Partners representing 60+properties; over 23 million square feet; and 20+ Community and Resource Partners. See the video of the event.
Leveraging the goals of the 2030 Challenge with an added layer of healthy buildings, the Pittsburgh 2030 District develops a comprehensive place-based initiative that will measurably transform a large cohort of buildings into a sustainable community via an innovative, visible, large-scale initiative unique to and reflective of Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh 2030 District is working with local building owners, managers, and operators; civic leaders; government officials; and community and resource partners to achieve measurable goals for building performance within a defined community that is small enough to be doable but large enough to be aspirational.
PITTSBURGH 2030 DISTRICT GOALS: Existing Buildings & Infrastructure Operations
PITTSBURGH 2030 DISTRICT GOALS: New Buildings, Major Renovations, & New Infrastructure
Building on the best elements of existing sustainable community and energy initiatives like the 2030 Challenge, DOE's Better Buildings Challenge, Pittsburgh Climate Initiative, and Breathe Project, the Pittsburgh 2030 District is also working to add critical performance criteria related to indoor air quality that will establish healthy, high performance practices and measures on a community scale, while providing a replicable model for other communities in Western Pennsylvania and beyond.
High performance buildings have proven track records of simultaneously increasing business and property profitability, reducing environmental impacts, and improving occupant health. This groundbreaking project will keep Pittsburgh competitive and ensure a healthy and livable city in 2030.
The Pittsburgh 2030 District is part of the Pittsburgh Climate Initiative collaboration.
