Episode #6: 2030 Districts - Dallas Commercial Real Estate (Part I)
With over 463 Million Square Feet of commercial building space and over 1,000 member organizations, 2030 Districts are rapidly emerging as a new model for urban sustainability. 2030 Districts are organizations 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.
In this episode Salima shares the who, what, and why of the 2030 Districts and why Dallas property owner/manager/developers should join a local 2030 District to help them make significant changes to their properties to create reductions necessary to transition to a low carbon economy.
