3R Sustainability is thrilled to announce its new, official sponsorship of Pittsburgh’s 2030 District, in which 3R is proud to work and live. All 2030 District Sponsors are invited to attend monthly meetings that bring together like-minded collaborators who focus on sharing best practices to meet a common goal. While 3R continues to consult and assist project teams in building design, construction, retrofitting and reviews of green buildings, this official sponsorship will now allow for an increase in cross-sector collaboration.
“As a 2030 District sponsor, GBA member, and local sustainability consultancy, 3R Sustainability is proud to be among and support Pittsburgh’s leading organizations in the largest 2030 District. The District members’ commitment to driving measurable progress toward the 2030 reduction goals will result in a more sustainable, resilient, and prosperous region,” exclaims 3R CEO, Jana Lake.
Facilitated by the Green Building Alliance, the Pittsburgh 2030 District currently consists of 123 organizations across sectors including healthcare, higher education, and technology.
