Lead Organization: A collaboration of partners throughout Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh 2030 Districts
Many cities are beginning to look at their energy consumption as a whole by engaging with property managers, local business and political leaders and other community stakeholders to actively track their consumption of water, electricity, and natural gas and work together on reductions. These leaders are forming 2030 Districts, with the goal of reducing energy consumption by 50% by the year 2030.
The Pittsburgh 2030 District is a collaborative of high-performance buildings in Downtown and Oakland covering over 430 commercial properties, 68.2 million square feet and 85 property partners. In 2015, the 2030 district saw these reductions.
- Energy: ↓ 12.5% below baseline
- Water: ↓ 10.3% below baseline
- Transportation Emissions: ↓ 24.2% below baseline
