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, transportation emissions, and to improve stormwater management.

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.

Who's participating?

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.

How are we doing?

Each year, Green Building United aggregates progress toward the district goals. As of our latest annual report (based on 2019 data) property partners districtwide have achieved:

  • 30.7% reduction in energy use

  • 29.1% reduction in water use

  • 12.8% reduction in transportation emissions

  • 50.1 verified Greened Acres

How are we meeting the goals?

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.

How do you get involved?
