About Seattle 2030 District:
23 million feet of downtown buildings will meet or exceed Better Building Challenge goals
The Seattle 2030 District is an effort of more than 40 civic leaders - building owners and professionals, utilities, Architecture2030, the City of Seattle, and King County - to become the first large-scale, high performance building district in the country. The 2030 District has set aggressive reduction goals for building energy use, water use, and greenhouse gases based on the 2030 Challenge for Planning, and members have agreed to work together to ensure the District meets those goals. The Seattle 2030 District is model of public-private collaboration that will reduce energy use, generate local economic activity, and pave the way towards a sustainable future. Enrolled buildings will exceed 23 million square feet.
