THE JULY 2011 GREENDRINKS WILL BE ON TUESDAY, 12 JULY AND WILL BE HOSTED BY THE SEATTLE OFFICE OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT and THE SEATTLE CLIMATE PARTNERSHIP. These two departments are working together, and supporting Greendrinks, as part of the city's goals of reducing greenhouse gases in Seattle by: 7% below 1990 levels by 2012, 30% below 1990 levels by 2024, and 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.

The featured non-profit will be SEATTLE 2030 DISTRICT. The Seattle 2030 District will be the first large-scale high performance building district in the country. In 2010, over 40 civic leaders, including major property owners and property managers, architects, engineers, utilities, and members of the City of Seattle and King County, created the Seattle 2030 District Planning Committee and adopted the 2030 Challenge for Planners, setting aggressive reduction goals for building energy use, water use, and CO2 from vehicle miles traveled. The Seattle 2030 District is a replicable model of performance-based planning and public-private collaboration that can lead America away from fossil fuel dependency.

The July Greendrinks will take place at 1201 Third Avenue. As a proud host of the July Greendrinks event, the 1201 Third Avenue Building is one of the biggest champions of green initiatives among buildings of similar size. Its continuous efforts and commitment to reducing its carbon footprint have led to the winning of numerous awards, accolades and ratings such as a LEED Platinum (EB) Certification, Energy Star rating of 93 and the 2011 regional TOBY Award.

As usual, we will be collecting a $5 suggested donation at the door that will be split between our featured non-profit, the SEATTLE 2030 DISTRICT, and Seattle Greendrinks. Click here to plan your trip to the event using Metro's Trip Planner.
