Philadelphia 2030 District

Philadelphia 2030 is committed to reducing energy & water use, as well as transportation emissions by 50%, by the year 2030.

This Summer, we will launch our newest Transportation Survey, which will gather commuting data for each building in our 2030 District. This will give us a clear picture of building related transportation emissions, and will guide our targeted emission reduction strategies for each of our 2030 Partners. 

The link between buildings and transportation is clear - and in Philadelphia, the Building and Transportation sectors make up 95% of GHG emissions in the city (with transportation going up 5% since the previous inventory in 2013). The efforts tof the 2030 District can help change that, and help the City meet its 2050 Carbon Neutrality goals across multiple sectors.
