Earthplace is this year's proud recipient of the 2030 ChangeMakers Award for Leadership in Sustainability. This honor is awarded by the Stamford 2030 District, a collaborative, nationally recognized, but local community of high performance buildings in downtown Stamford that aims to dramatically reduce energy and water consumption and emissions from transportation, while increasing competetiveness in the business environment and owners' returns on investment. 2030 Districts across the nation are working with local building owners to create high efficiency districts as an economic development strategy. In addition to tracking energy, water, and transportation emissions, the Stamford 2030 District also focuses on resiliency.
