Launched in 2016, the Austin 2030 District brings together property owners and managers, professional service providers and community organizations to work towards urban sustainability. Dewitt Peart, our president and CEO, serves on the leadership council for the Austin 2030 District and recently shared an op-ed about the progress of the initiative in the Austin Business Journal. Below is an excerpt:


 
The Austin 2030 District is a growing collaborative of property owners and managers, professional service providers and community organizations with a common goal of keeping Austin competitive, resilient and vibrant. Similar to joining a running club to gain fitness and speed, the Austin 2030 District is a "club" for property managers that funnels resources, recognition and information to its members to accelerate their accomplishments. It also provides a forum for interaction with other stakeholders who share these values, such as the city, county, utility providers, and nonprofit advocacy and education groups.
 
The Austin 2030 District currently represents over 14 million square feet of building space in the downtown area. Members include JW Marriott Austin, Unico Properties at 504 Lavaca, the Paramount and Stateside theaters, The Long Center for the Performing Arts, Towers of Town Lake, and the Austin Convention Center, among many others.


 
Through the Austin 2030 District, local businesses have the potential to transform the city’s urban core by supporting each other in their efforts to reduce waste and increase building performance and efficiency. This will drive innovation through collaboration, as well as leverage shared resources so that business leaders can reduce the downtown business district’s energy use, water use and carbon emissions — all while stimulating economic growth and delivering bottom-line benefits.
