Sustainable Pittsburgh's Green Workplace Challenge is returning for its 4th year. Local businesses and and organizations are invited to participate in a friendly challenge program where they can receive due recognition for their sustainable actions and achievements. Actions that demonstrate measurable change provide companies with a baseline for comparison in the future. The challenge also includes a number of measurable and verifiable actions for businesses and property owners to implement, which results in earning points. The challenge supports participants with workshops and events and highlights high achievers on the Leaderboard.
The environmental impact of the previous challenges is impressive. For example enough energy was saved to power 9,700 average US homes for a year. Participation is a great way to preserve the environment, reduce costs, and receive public recognition for improvements.
