GWC 3.0 Workshop #1: "Getting Started for 2015!"
December 18, 2014
8:30 - 10:30 AM
Two Chatham Center, 4th Floor SPC Conference Center, 112 Washington Place, Pittsburgh, PA 15219
This workshop provided guidance on how to set up your accounts, build your baselines, and start tracking the energy, water, waste, and transportation impacts with Portfolio Manager, the EPA WARM tool, and the Commute Info transportation tracker. Many competition points can be earned by achieving reductions in electric, natural gas, water, waste, and transit impacts. Workshop participants learned how to get these tools set up and set their baselines. At the end of this workshop, organizations were on their way to earn sizable competition points from completing related actions in the GWC competition guidebook.
