A brief description of the institution’s formal community partnership to advance sustainability, including website URL (if available) and information to support each affirmative response above:

In 2017, Champlain College became a member of the Burlington 2030 District.

The Burlington 2030 District is a private/public partnership working to reduce building energy consumption, water use and transportation emissions 50% by 2030. By establishing the economic case for these reductions, we help property owners increase asset value, reduce operating costs, and create a healthier community. The Burlington District is unique in that it seeks to achieve these goals for the entire city.

The Burlington 2030 District works to achieve the 2030 Challenge targets at a district scale. While individual buildings will have specific opportunities for energy reductions, a district approach will provide the opportunity for district-wide heat recovery, distributed generation, and other district energy efficiencies that can reduce the demand for resources. This type of collaborative action is a strategic undertaking to help the City of Burlington meet and support the priorities of the City's Climate Action Plan, as well as the State of Vermont's Comprehensive Energy Plan. The project also ensures that there is a replicable, straightforward path for other cities to follow as they aim to increase the efficiency of their building stock, including water and energy use.
