Looking to build a cleaner and greener business or company?
The event, part of Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Champions for Sustainability (C4S) business network, will bring together local and national industry leaders who will share insights and practical advice on smarter ways to use energy and save money.
In addition, attendees will receive an update on the Leaderboard of companies engaged in the Green Workplace Challenge
. Keynote speaker, Jon Creyts, program director for the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), will discuss how business-led solutions are creating a sustainable energy economy in a talk entitled, “Reinventing Fire.”
The Breathe Project will also be featured, a coalition of residents, businesses, government and other groups in southwestern Pennsylvania who are working together to clean up the air for the health of families and the economy.
“The private sector has been a leading force in Southwestern Pennsylvania’s transformation from its industrial past to a present-day diverse economy and improved quality of life," says Matt Mahalik of Sustainable Pittsburgh. "One remaining challenge is the region’s air quality. The good news is that there are short-term, bottom line economic benefits to implementing practices that simultaneously save money and improve air quality."
