The Pittsburgh Green Workplace Challenge recognizes the paramount importance of maintaining the confidentiality of information from participating organizations. All participant data will remain entirely confidential and will be used strictly for verification purposes, for the purposes of awarding points for the competition, and to aggregate program results, such as the overall total amount of energy and emissions saved across all participants in the program.

Only Green Workplace Challenge Staff will be able to access the information that is shared in EPA’s Portfolio Manager and that is submitted for verification purposes through the Green Workplace Challenge website. Participating company utility data, costs, emissions, and verification documentation will never be shared with the public or any other entity outside of the Green Workplace Challenge Team and Oversight Committee.

The Green Workplace Challenge will update its leader board page at least once per month. This page consists of a display of the total number of competition points awarded to each participating organization, according to the number of verified actions that the participating organization has undertaken. The leader board will be shared with the public.  Additionally, participants who create an account on the Green Workplace Challenge website will be able to view the actions that they have completed.

The Green Workplace Challenge will share with the public the overall competition results, which may include aggregated information across all participants, such as aggregated cost savings, aggregated total amount of reduced emissions, and aggregated total amount of energy savings.
