Convened by Green Building United, it is a voluntary effort by the owners, managers, and developers of the city’s largest buildings to achieve deep reductions in energy use, water use, transportation emissions, and to improve stormwater management. We currently have over 48 million square feet, representing over 300 buildings in Philadelphia committed to this mission.
Now more than ever, companies and buildings are making the pledge to become more sustainable, and we want to help. Together we can build awareness around green building, operations, and maintenance, increase the opportunities to engage with likeminded individuals, make informed building decisions through data tracking and analysis, and reduce the carbon emissions from our built environment.
Interested in taking part? Contact Sophia Winston - email@example.com for more information & to take the pledge!
