Pitt Green Hosts & Events

Help advance the University of Pittsburgh’s culture of sustainability by getting your Pitt Green Host designation so your team can hold certified Pitt Green Events!

By Becoming a Pitt Green Host, you’ll learn how to make the events you host at Pitt more sustainable and accessible. The Pitt Green Host training covers a broad range of topics and answers questions you might have about sustainable options for your event, including:

  • How can you handle recycling and composting both during and after your event?
  • Is there a way to reduce waste by using compostable dishes, reusable decorations, or creating digital agendas?
  • What dining/catering options are there, and how do you provide attendees plant-forward, vegetarian, and/or vegan food options?
  • What other resources are available to make your event more sustainable and accessible?
