Cincinnati 2030 District Occupant Health Pillar & Guide

We are proud to announce the first of its kind Occupant Health Pillar! District members and partners joined our virtual launch in August to hear from guest speakers Dr. Angela Loder (International WELL Building Institute), Dr. Lauren Bartoszek (The Health Collaborative), Andrew O'Dom (Kroger), Jessica Glorius-Dangelo (M+A Architects) and Yasha Ogg (Emersion Design) share some of the key features and research backing the recommended building optimizations. Panelists Jeremy Faust (Fifth Third Bank) and Tiffany Broyles Yost (GBBN Architects) shared how they are approaching the guide. Members - reach out to Elizabeth to start planning.

Members, save the date for our first Occupant Health Deep Dive session on September 30th from 1:00-2:00. This session will be focused on the two optimizations related to the Mind category. This will be your opportunity to ask questions and decide if the optimizations are a good match for your organization's culture and goals.

Member Spotlight: Cincinnati Art Museum

Helen Frankenthaler Foundation has awarded $5.1 million to 79 institutions through the Frankenthaler Climate Initiative.

2030 District Members are part of a network of cities and sustainability leaders. Our network created a platform for our museum Members to collaborate, share stories and connect with facilities facing similar challenges across the country. In one such meeting, the museums learned about the Frankenthaler Grant opportunity. The Cincinnati Art Museum (CAM), pursued this and was selected as a Frankenthaler Climate Initiative awardee
The Helen Frankenthaler Foundation seeks to catalyze climate change action in the visual arts. Funding from the grant will go toward energy efficient upgrades to the climate control systems that helps conserve the collection. This is important part of CAM's journey to reduce emissions and work towards their 2030 District goals.

Join the Cincinnati Art Museum for their Drive Electric Event on September 25th from 9:00 to 11:30 am.

Climate News:

  • A new guide for science-based climate targets for cities has been developed by by the Science Based Targets Network’s core ‘cities’ partners CDP, C40, GCoM, Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF).
  • Over 200 Medical Journals joined voices urging businesses to take more aggressive measures to make carbon reductions. “The rapidly warming climate is the "greatest threat" to global public health.” According to the most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, “the scale of recent changes across the climate system as a whole and the present state of many aspects of the climate system are unprecedented...however, strong and sustained reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases would limit climate change.” We measure the data so we know where to go as a district.
