Cleveland, Ohio’s mission is to be carbon neutral by 2030. They are moving through items in environment, energy etc. to lead towards sustainability.  On of the 2030 Group’s goal is to use less coal and become carbon nuetral.

There are 9 Districts in this 2030 Plan. Seattle is number 1 and Cleveland is number 2. Cleveland has been involved for 3.5 years. Launched in May 10, 2012.  Cleveland is working with DOE as a data partner and  the Kresge Foundation in Troy, Michigan.

The goal on new buildings
The 2030 goal within existing buildings is to cut by 50%. Cleveland seeks to new buildings to be carbon neutral.
Further, they seek to reduce building size and make new buildings tight for energy efficiency.

As they advance on important aspect within the treatment of buildings  is to aid property owners. “Every time we talk to property owners about their buildings they did not know what their spending.”

We are working to use green leases and change tenant behaviors. The goal is to continue to measure progress. 2030 want more property owners to join. “There is no cost to property owners to engage and join.” The goal is to work with property owners to understand the savings.  In the end is economic development and repurpose the infrastructure.

The challenge is getting the data to  effectively measure. The inability to measure restrains and constrains sustainability and efficiency. Continuous Improvement is challenged without measurement.
