Pitt Green Home Office Challenge

The goal of the Pitt Green Home Office Challenge is to help Pitt employees more holistically consider their home workspaces — and how tweaks to them might create a more comfortable, healthy, and productive environment that supports Pitt’s culture of sustainability remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a participant in the Pitt Green Home Office Challenge, you will be able to compare your score and carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) reductions with other employees. With this Challenge, you’ll also have an opportunity to tell us about your work from home practices regarding:

  • Culture of Sustainability
  • Energy
  • Eating Habits
  • Health & Well-being
  • Printing
  • Purchasing
  • Reuse
  • Transportation
  • Waste
