EcoDistricts Launches Processed-based Framework and Performance Standard to Empower Sustainable Urban Development

Posted on

EcoDistricts announces the global launch of the EcoDistricts Protocol, a process-based framework and performance standard that empowers sustainable neighborhood- and district-scale urban development, according to EcoDistricts CEO Rob Bennett.

The launch is the culmination of more than five years of research, development and advisement from more than 100 diverse industry experts and 16 district-scale projects worldwide.

“How we build our cities is the biggest challenge and opportunity of our lifetime. Success hinges on building robust public-private-civic partnerships, aligning leadership, and improving cross-sector collaboration to put people and planet at the center of every urban development decision,” Bennett says.

The protocol is a rigorous sustainable urban development framework designed to achieve vibrant community outcomes. The protocol puts a comprehensive lens on every urban regeneration decision, drives the delivery of meaningful performance outcomes, and sets the conditions for sustainable, collaborative impact.

“We call on visionary city makers and urban development leaders to disrupt the status quo by embracing our new model of urban regeneration,” says Bennett.

The protocol is structured around three core areas:

  • Three imperatives: Placing social, economic, and environmental sustainability at the center of neighborhood initiatives. These include Equity, Resilience and Climate Protection.
  • Six priorities: A set of six rigorous goals, 49 objectives and 94 indicators used to scope and define a district’s sustainability agenda. These include: Place, Prosperity, Health + Wellness, Connectivity, Living Infrastructure and Resource Restoration.
  • Three implementation phases: A framework that sets the conditions for sustained, scalable outcomes that address the protocol’s Imperatives and Priorities and meet the specific needs of the district over time. These phases include Formation, Roadmap and Performance.

“The EcoDistricts Protocol represents an important tool to help city leaders think about sustainability in an integrated way and at a scale that is truly effective, says Joel Mills, senior director, Communities by Design, the American Institute of Architects. “Using the EcoDistricts Protocol, cities can build momentum for scalable change that transforms urban sustainability and positions communities for success in the 21st century.”
