One Planet One Destiny, Destiny Florida: America’s First Eco-Sustainable City

Destiny

Destiny, Florida, America’s first eco-sustainable city is one among 16 founding projects of the Climate Positive Development Program, a Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) program that will support the development of large-scale urban projects that demonstrate cities can grow in ways that are “climate positive.”  Climate Positive real estate developments will strive to reduce the amount of on-site CO2 emissions to below zero.

The Climate Positive Development Program was launched by President Clinton, Founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation, on May 19, 2009, at the C40 Summit in Seoul, South Korea.  Along with the other founding projects, Destiny, Florida will demonstrate Climate Positive strategies, setting a compelling environmental and economic example for cities to follow.

To reduce the net greenhouse gas emissions of their Climate Positive Development projects to below zero, property developers and local governments will agree to work in partnership on specific areas of activity. This includes implementing economically viable innovations in buildings, the generation of clean energy, waste management, water management, and transportation and outdoor lighting systems.

Last year, for the first time, half the world’s population (3.2 billion people) lived in cities, and that figure is expected to grow to 70 percent by 2050. Cities also occupy just 2 percent of the world’s landmass, yet are responsible for more than two-thirds of global energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. How cities change and grow is therefore a critical component to tackling the climate crisis.

“We are proud of the recognition Destiny has received from the Clinton Climate Initiative as an urban development that can help reduce the world’s carbon footprint.  Destiny will be a global model city for sustainable living, and a hub where the latest clean technology innovations will emerge,” stated Anthony V. Pugliese, III, Managing Partner and CEO of Destiny.

Destiny, Florida will be developed in Osceola County in Central Florida. Comprised of over 41,300 acres, this sustainable city of over 64 square miles is strategically located at the crossroads of the Florida Turnpike and two major highways, less than one hour south from Orlando, Florida. Destiny is dedicated to the principles of sustainability, which include the environment, the economy, social equity, education and the reduction of GHG Emissions and consumption of natural resources. 

Destiny, Florida has goals to achieve at least a 50 percent reduction in site-wide energy demand compared to business as usual, by integrating both passive and active energy design strategies. On-site clean renewable energy sources will produce at least 50 percent of remaining energy demands. By combining CCI’s business and finance expertise. Source: Destiny
