Sustainable Pittsburgh Workplace
The University of Pittsburgh is a Platinum Sustainable Pittsburgh Workplace, a designation that recognizes the commitment we have to our community, our economy, and our planet.
Designated by local nonprofit Sustainable Pittsburgh, a Sustainable Pittsburgh Workplace is a business, nonprofit, or other organization that has demonstrated a commitment to socially just and environmentally sustainable operations. Workplaces are evaluated based on overall sustainability performance across a range of categories and actions designed to help them care for the communities they touch, while protecting the environment and enhancing regional economic growth.
Pitt’s Platinum Sustainable Pittsburgh Workplace designation is good for 2022-24. The University of Pittsburgh is also a proud past winner in other Sustainable Pittsburgh workplace challenges, including placing first in the University Division of all past competitions (2014-15, 2016-17, and 2018-2019).
