  • Balboa Park is a 1,200 acre park in the heart of San Diego. After 96 years, Balboa Park continues to serve as the GREEN jewel in San Diego’s crown. We are very proud of the 500 trustees like yourselves and more than 3,000 staff and 7,000 volunteers who represent 26 institutions in this beautiful 1200 acre Civic Treasure.
  • 26 Arts, Science and Cultural Institutions 3,500 staff 7,000 volunteers 500 trustees 6.2 million visitors The arts, science, and cultural institutions that reside in Balboa Park and comprise the Partnership hold many accolades, such as: The internationally-acclaimed, Tony® Award-winning Old Globe is one of the most renowned regional theatres in the country The San Diego Natural History Museum is the oldest scientific institution in Southern California (1874) The San Diego Museum of Art is the region’s oldest and largest art museum. The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center opened in 1973, featuring the world’s first IMAX Dome Theatre. The San Diego Air & Space Museum has the only International Aerospace Hall of Fame. The San Diego Model Railroad Museum is the largest of its kind in the United States and the only one accredited by the Association of American Museums. The San Diego Zoo is the largest zoological membership organization and has of the largest zoo-based research centers in the world. Annually, the Partnership institutions: Serve more than 6.5 million visitors, Engage 7,000 volunteers, and Provide 3,000 jobs for San Diego residents Give away more than $2 million in complementary admissions Contribute more than $280 million to the local economy And have delivered more than $250 million in capital improvements in the last decade alone to preserve and enhance the Park
  • In line with the Partnership’s strategic plan, these are the Partnership major initiatives. They were developed from a strong foundation of collaboration over several years.
  • The Partnership has created the Sustainability Program to strengthen the Park’s economic, environmental vitality, through education, measuring and promoting sustainable practices. When we reach 2015, the Parks Centennial, which is only 5 years away, we will have brought Balboa Park into greater environmental balance. How are we going to do it….?
  • The Program has many initiatives, Core Concepts Triple Bottom-line E&P’s Engage Stakeholders Mentoring/Education Save Natural Resources Lower Carbon Footprint
  • This Program began by learning about funding opportunities for energy efficiency projects and sharing the information in informal lunch and learns and is now an internationally recognized Sustainability model which is scalable. in Partnership with City of San Diego and SDG&E $30,000 matched additional program funding from SDG&E $7,000 Corporate Sponsorships $10,000 Institution In-kind donations - Space and Staff time $180,000 Marketing and Outreach: Presentations, Press Releases, TV Spots, Email Campaigns, Program Collateral in concert with the Learning Instute
  • The Park is uniting in the new ways we do business. By following practices such as US Green Building Council’s LEED program and measuring our results with tools such as the EPA benchmark portfolio the Park is making an economic and environmental difference
  • These projects were funded by the institutions by using SDG&E program On-bill financing. A zero interest loan paid back by the savings 17 Participating Institutions 5.4 million Kilowatt hours of electricity AND 91,000 therms of natural gas saved annually =  $800,000 in annual savings Reducing 3,882 metric tons of emissions =385 homes electricity use for one year
  • The Cultural Partnership advocated for Stimulus funds and with the help of Councilman Gloria received 2.5 million Saving 1,200,000 KWhs Saving $200,000 annually By 2012 = $1,000,000 annually By 2015 = $1,500,000 annually
  • NEW PARTNERSHIP I will wrap up with sharing about our collaboration with the San Diego Green Building Council’s new Green Assistance Program (GAP) the Park is becoming a hands - on Green education center within our institutions: As a Green Jobs Training Program, it has trained more than 40 individuals with professional experience and tools to be leaders in sustainable field by working with Balboa Park facilities. Our goal is 10 or more institutions reaching LEED Other opportunities you ask..
  • Again, I want to acknowledge the work of Park Leadership, staff and Partners who are working behind the scenes. OUR STAFF AND PARTNERS Individually and collectively the Staff AND Partners, such as SDG&E and the City Staff make these results happen. Here is one such meeting. Through mentoring, colleagues sharing their knowledge. This was a planning meeting for 2011 projects
  • The Showcase Award honors us for commitment and dedication to achieving sustainability goals, and provides an important opportunity to share best practices in the field. This recognition illustrates that the the Balboa Park Sustainability Program exemplifies Be st in Class” in areas such as sustainability policies, programs, practices, tools, and technologies.  Our Sustainability Journey has been included in the Rachel Maden’s new Book. AND Two of our Institutions have reached LEED
  • Our paper on how we began our journey was accepted by the ACEEE American Council for an Energy Efficiency Economy Posters are presented in a session attended by 400 world wide participants. Downloadable
