Sign up for the 2014-2015 Pittsburgh Green Workplace Challenge!

$7.4 million – This is how much participants in the Pittsburgh Green Workplace Challenge (GWC) saved in energy costs since 2011. They also:

  • Completed over 2000 measurable actions and engaged thousands of employees
  • Saved enough energy to power nearly 8,200 average U.S. homes for a year
  • Saved enough water to fill Heinz Field 13 feet deep
  • And reduced emissions the equivalent of 4 days worth of all flights leaving Pittsburgh International on a typical day

How did this happen? By tracking and measuring actions via the Green Workplace Challenge!
