The Power of Working Together

As part of the Lloyd EcoDistrict Action Forum, or LEAF, Lloyd stakeholders and community members can take action to make Lloyd a more sustainable neighborhood. By providing a forum for interested individuals from local buildings, utilities, and city agencies to share ideas, pool resources, LEAF has developed and promoted new solutions for the EcoDistrict while sharing in the creation of sustainable results.

Broadly speaking we work on projects which address our goals for energy, waste, transportation, and water. We aim to create a more resilient neighborhood by regularly working together on big and small projects, and initiatives. We also work hard to make sure we evaluate our work through a lens of social equity and well-being. So far, we have developed action plans for two of these five goals; energy efficiency and waste reduction.

  • For energy efficiency, we have identified 15 energy-related projects to reach our goal of “no net increase” in energy use by 2035.
  • For waste reduction, by 2035 we will recover 93% of waste and generate the same amount of waste as current levels, despite development which is expected to triple the square footage of the district. Our stakeholders are working together to pursue 14 actions to reduce waste in Lloyd.
