The City of Pittsburgh is a national leader in green building, with 24 structures certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, a voluntary national standard for high-performance, sustainable buildings. On the banks of the Allegheny River, the David L. Lawrence Convention Center is the world’s first LEED-certified convention center.


What Can We Do?

The good news is there’s plenty Pittsburgh residents can do to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent further climate change. That’s what inspired the creation of the Pittsburgh Climate Initiative and motivated the Green Government Task Force.

Your support of these leaders and their recommendations in the municipal, business, community and higher education fields has the potential to make a significant and lasting impact on the climate, globally and in Pittsburgh.
