From the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh's press release:

A greener future is on the horizon, and the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) is helping lead the way.

HACP is proud to announce that it is expanding its commitment to sustainable development by joining the Green Building Alliance’s Pittsburgh 2030 District. Composed of over 550 buildings, the Pittsburgh 2030 District is a collective of property owners making voluntary commitments to reduce their carbon emissions, energy usage, water usage, and emissions from transportation by the year 2030.

“This is the next step,” said HACP Executive Director Caster D. Binion. “We’ve been working hard to make our buildings and developments more eco-friendly, but this will bring that commitment to the next level.”

As part of the Pittsburgh 2030 District, HACP has pledged to reduce carbon emissions for existing buildings by 50-65% and keep new construction carbon neutral by the year 2030. Not only will this initiative reduce energy and water consumption, it will also make building operations more efficient, modernizing HACP’s property portfolio and saving money.

“It’s a big win for everyone,” said Mr. Binion. “It’s a win for us, it’s a win for the city, it’s a win for our residents. And, it’s a win for the planet.”

The Pittsburgh 2030 District gives HACP the opportunity to scale up its sustainability efforts and work with other property owners and developers on a regional level. With access to new monthly discussions, performance inspections, and peer networks, HACP is set to build on its success and enhance its role in moving the Pittsburgh area towards a more sustainable future.
