Cost: $25 for Green Workplace Challenge Participants and for C4S/Sustainable Pittsburgh Members
Buffet Breakfast Provided
Come celebrate the leadership and achievements of the 2011 - 2012 Pittsburgh Green Workplace Challenge competitors and observers!
Over the past twelve months, these 50+ forward-thinking organizations from southwestern PA took actions that resulted in improved energy efficiencies, water use and emissions reductions, ultimately paving the way for a more sustainable region. The GWC sets itself apart from other comparable competitions across the country because participants are required to measure their actions and provide verification.
The Leadership Recognition and Awards Ceremony showcases the overall achievements of participants and provides a positive public platform for them to be recognized for going beyond regulations to implement voluntary measures that are good for business, the environment, and people. Awards will be presented to companies who achieve the top scores in the large, medium and small business categories.
Please join us for this inspiring occasion. See who the leaders are on October 18 and the impact they’ve made on the region!
This event is the finale in a year-long series of Green Workplace Challenge participant workshops.
The Compact, a commitment and performance platform, provides a credible and rigorous pathway for businesses to advance and publically demonstrate their corporate sustainability achievements.
