Our TBL is at work – we made a difference for our region’s sustainability. We are excited to share that AE Works was a top scorer in Pittsburgh Green Workplace Challenge in the Small Business category! An overview of the competition’s results and energy savings is below and also in the PA Environmental Digest.
What is the Green Workplace Challenge (GWC)?
Organized by Sustainable Pittsburgh, through its Champions for Sustainability Sustainable Business network, the GWC is a yearlong, friendly competition for businesses, nonprofits, universities, and local governments to track and measure improvements in energy, water, waste, and transportation.
The competition involves using a Playbook that provides over 250 green and other sustainable actions that participants can take to earn points, verification, and recognition. Each sector competes within its own category. The 2016-2017 GWC included the following categories: Micro, Small, Medium, Large Business; Micro, Small, Medium Nonprofit; University; Small and Large Municipalities. There was also a “mini” 21-week competition for K-12 Schools.
