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.
Building owners and/or managers that commit property to meet the district goals.
Government, non-profit and civic organizations that provide support and expertise for the district.
Energy services companies, utilities, and professional firms that provide expertise, deliver services, and sponsor the district.
Each year, Green Building United aggregates progress toward the district goals. As of our latest annual report (based on 2020 data) property partners districtwide have achieved:
43.4% reduction in energy use
29.8% reduction in water use
12.8% reduction in transportation emissions (2019 Data)
54.3 verified Greened Acres
Property partners are meeting the goals of the Philadelphia 2030 District through sophisticated operations, robust tenant engagement, and strategic investments in conservation and efficiency strategies.
