Background

The Seattle 2030 District is an effort of more than 40 civic leaders including building owners and professionals, utilities, Architecture 2030, the City of Seattle, and King County, to become the first large scale, high performance building district in the country. The City of Seattle is a founding member of the Seattle 2030 District, and provides key support including streamlined permitting services, working with local utilities, and policy alignment. The City has supported the Seattle 2030 District since its inception with grant application support and administration, and continues to be a key partner moving forward.

Energy Efficiency Commitment

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.
