Save Your Energy – Pittsburgh Tops the List Again

The Pittsburgh 2030 District has something to brag about. This initiative, created by the Green Building Alliance, aims to cut energy, water and transportation-related emissions by the year 2030. Pittsburgh has 438 participating buildings, at a total of 68.2 million square feet. The Steel City joined the challenge in 2012 and makes up the largest 2030 District of 12 participating cities in the country.

Pittsburgh’s 2030 buildings reduced energy use by 12.5 percent, water use by 10.3 percent, and transportation emissions by 24.2 percent. The latter exceeds the 2020 goal of 20 percent.

Accordingly, the city is on track to hit each five-year marker.
