Problem DescriptionThe 2030 Districts Inititiative was created to help achieve our energy efficiency and sustainabilty goals in the built space.
The multi-purpose vision of the 2030 Districts Network is to onboard new cities to the 2030 District model, support peer exchange across Districts, store and share data, use the aggregate purchasing power of the District membership to secure reduced costs, create national partnership relationships, and influence national policy on transportation infrastructure and building water and energy efficiency.
To expand its support for 2030 Districts, Architecture 2030 has established a 2030 Districts Network, leading the effort to create and help newly forming Districts and coordinate District resources and collaborations in cities across the United States. Architecture 2030’s objective is for 2030 District national collaborators and partners to have equal access to the support and resources needed to achieve the 2030 Challenge for Planning targets.
2030 Districts are led by the private sector, with local building industry leaders uniting around a shared vision for sustainability and economic growth – while aligning with local community groups and government to achieve significant energy, water, and emissions reductions within our commercial cores.
