Pittsburgh and the surrounding region has shown how soot stains can turn into green roofs and steel’s decline could become a tech revolution. We are a city and region of resilience, but more than ever before, we see how people, place, and performance must come together for a healthy world. At Green Building Alliance, we know that Pittsburgh and the surrounding region will bounce back – because we have seen it happen before.

In 2012, GBA started a new initiative for the downtown business corridor in Pittsburgh, bringing together building owners, city officials, and the design and construction industries. At that time, businesses had little regional structure to prioritize sustainability in their operations and design. With the start of the Pittsburgh 2030 District that year, building owners and managers were given a new way to show the importance of integrating occupant health and environmental sustainability, while also boosting savings. Their collaborative work with GBA has now totaled over $135 million in savings for our region!

In this upcoming recovery, GBA will be working to continue creating a healthy, high performing built environment. But the critical component of this movement is you. Green Building Alliance convenes everyone in our region to promote human health and sustainability.  Together, those millions in savings have diverted enough CO2 to equal almost two thirds of Pittsburgh’s homes going off the grid.

As an alliance, our members have come together in economic and health crises before, and we will be doing it again. You can strengthen the voice of sustainability, promote healthy spaces, and bolster our economic recovery.

Will you join us today as a member? Your membership advances sustainability in our region while working with organizations to address public health concerns as we prepare to re-open our businesses and community. By joining today, you invest in the future of our region so all people can thrive.
