The Philadelphia 2030 District convenes working groups comprised of subject matter experts and district property partners to assist with the development of baselines and data tracking for both the water and transportation emissions metrics. Both working groups meet on a quarterly basis.
The charge of the working groups has been to determine an appropriate baseline and means of measuring each metric area given the available data and resources. In addition, the working groups are continuously compiling implementation strategies and complementary policy levers that can help scale the impact of participating buildings toward the goals.
