What You Can Do

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

CO2e Savings & Scoring

 

After completing the Pitt Green Home Office Challenge survey, you will be given two scores – a numerical score and a carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) savings.

  • Numerical Score – Use this score to compare yourself to other University of Pittsburgh employees and see how you stack up! This score takes into account all categories in the Green Home Office Challenge survey.
  • CO2e Savings – Use this score to learn how much your work from home practices are reducing your carbon footprint! This score takes into account your eating habits, energy practices, and transportation, decisions.
