Erie 2030 District Celebration
August 13, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Join Green Building Alliance and the Erie 2030 District to celebrate the program’s new status as an Established 2030 District along with the progress and achievements of Property Partners working towards 2030 challenge goals in Erie. We’ll celebrate the founding partners and sponsors of this newly established 2030 District, reveal energy reduction data from 2019, and highlight some local efficiency projects.
This event is free and open to the public!
A strategic initiative of Green Building Alliance, the Erie 2030 District is an interdisciplinary private-public collaborative working to create a groundbreaking high-performance business district. With the Architecture 2030 Challenge providing property performance targets of 50% reductions in energy use, water use, and transportation emissions by the year 2030, the District seeks to prove that high performance buildings are the most profitable buildings in Erie. The District represents not only a strategic undertaking to keep Erie competitive and innovative through 2030, but also represents a major investment in Erie’s future and reflects the collaborative nature of the region.
Thanks to the commitment of its founding Property Partners, sponsors, and resource and community partners – along with support from City and County Government – the Erie 2030 District reached the status of Established 2030 District in October 2019 (prior to this, it was designated as an Emerging District).
At this event, we’ll also celebrate the retirement of GBA’s Northwest PA Director Guy McUmber, who launched the Erie 2030 District and has dedicated his career to both people and the environment. Following the formal program, we’ll conclude with a celebration of both the District and Guy McUmber through a virtual toast.
The program’s agenda will include:
- History and Goals of the Erie 2030 District
- Highlight of Erie 2030 District Partners and Sponsors
- Energy Efficiency Project Spotlights
- Progress toward Energy Reduction Targets
This event is open to the public and free to attend, but we appreciate anyone who is able to donate a suggested contribution of $20. At Green Building Alliance, we envision a place where every building and community is sustainable so every person can thrive, and we thank you for all you do to make that vision a reality.
Anyone who registers for this event will receive an email prior to the event with a Zoom link to participate in the virtual event.
Thank you to our sponsors and funders!
