EcoDistricts Protocol Launches February 2016
Powering EcoDistricts Certification + Accreditation and Accelerating Leadership Across the Urban Regeneration Industry
The EcoDistricts Protocol is a first-of-its-kind, holistic standard that propels collaboration, transparency and innovation across district and neighborhoods scale urban regeneration projects. The Protocol provides a critical bridge between the rating systems that span the built environment marketplace, and the most challenging issues facing city makers today — inequity, economic disruption and ecological degradation.
Get on the list for our virtual launch party event:
We will be pre-releasing the final Protocol guide to a select group of stakeholders on December 18, 2015. Our formal release is scheduled for February 2016. To receive an invitation to our upcoming virtual launch party where we’ll formally release the Protocol, complete the simple form below:
The Protocol Makes Collaboration, Transparency and Innovation Inescapable
Far more than a rating tool, the EcoDistricts Protocol distills five years of research, development and field-testing supported by more than 100 industry experts into a set of simple, but profound commitments:
3 Imperatives: Equity, Climate Protection, Resilience
The Protocol is grounded in an unwavering commitment to equity, climate protection and resiliency — some of the most complex challenges facing cities that need deep advancement.
6 Priority Areas: Livability, Prosperity, Health+Wellness, Connectivity, Ecosystems Stewardship, Climate + Resource Protection.
A 4-Phase Implementation Model: Formation, Roadmap, Action, Stewardship
Unlike any standard in the market, the Protocol offers a 4-Phase implementation model that empowers collaboration, transparent information sharing, and innovation across a complex set of stakeholders.
Our approach incorporates five market transformations:
- Put equity and inclusion at the start and at the heart of solution design.
- Adopt the most holistic resilience lens to address the mounting climate crisis.
- Redefine the way we work so collaboration is inescapable.
- Embrace transparency to propel innovation.
- Use peer exchange as a catalyst for transformation.
