Pittsburgh’s ongoing physical, mental, economic, and environmental transformation has propelled a surge in sustainable development, green innovation, and collaboration across sectors. Municipal government, private business, nonprofit organizations, and university-based initiatives work side by side on creating a progressive, sustainable region. In some ways, Pittsburgh’s green story has been achieved. In most, we are only just beginning.
Regardless, all of these efforts must consider how they will affect the economy, built and natural environments, and social fabric of communities we live, work, learn, play, and visit. Whether sustainable infrastructure; equitable development projects; or research, technology, manufacturing, or innovation efforts, Pittsburgh Green Story attempts to capture the region’s collective efforts in sustainability.
Whether about people, places, products, or organizations, many of these tales have yet to be told – and some are still emerging. None is without its opportunities, achievements, and challenges.
