2030 Greater Victoria Resilient District
2030 Greater Victoria Resilient District is a new initiative led by BOMA BC, the City of Victoria and the District of Saanich. The 2030 Resilient District forms a unique public/private partnership between the two municipalities and owners and managers of commercial buildings within their boundaries, to achieve aggressive energy and emissions reductions targets, while also enhancing their buildings’ resilience. The program is part of the wider, North America-wide, 2030 District network.
Participating buildings voluntarily commit to reduce their buildings’ energy and emissions by 50% by the year 2030 (from 2007 baseline levels). To achieve these reductions, the District will catalyze a critical mass amongst the building owners and managers to investigate best practices and to implement pathways to better financing, design, policy and procurement decisions.
This is an important opportunity for the City to partner with progressive building owners and managers, to help drive efficient, high-performance, and low-carbon improvements in our large building stock. Over 30% of Victoria’s greenhouse gas emissions come from large buildings, so we are very excited to partner with BOMA’s 2030 District program, which will bring local leaders together to collaborate and take action to eliminate building GHG’s and improve sustainability,” Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps.
