Philadelphia 2030 District

Green Building United convenes the Philadelphia 2030 District, a voluntary effort by the owners, managers, and developers of the city’s largest properties to achieve deep reductions in energy use, water use, and transportation emissions.

The initiative seeks to improve efficiency in the building sector in Philadelphia with the goal to lower costs, reduce carbon emissions, improve indoor air quality and tenant comfort, and improve the resiliency of the city’s new and existing building stock.

District Partners

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.

Working Groups

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.
