The deadline to register for Sustainable Pittsburgh’s 2016 Green Workplace Challenge is August 31. The Challenge enables businesses to receive recognition for their sustainable actions and achievements,
The competition includes measurable and verifiable actions for businesses and property owners to implement, which results in earning points.
The GWC steps beyond national trendsetters in enabling businesses to actively track and receive credit and verification for their green actions in a safe and secure environment. Because the GWC involves the transfer of potentially sensitive information, all company data remain confidential.
Many businesses rent rather than own their offices or buildings, but we encourage and offer points to those who rent and work to access their utility data. Both business and property manager participants can track their current point totals using the GWC leaderboard, which appears on the competition website and is updated monthly.
In order to give GWC participants adequate time to establish an energy usage baseline, implement actions, and make significant changes, the challenge will run for 13 months, starting in June of 2016.
It concludes with participants being recognized for their efforts at an awards ceremony in September of 2017.
