Pittsburgh's Green Economy is Ripe for Business Growth

January 19th, 2024, 11:15 AM

Pittsburgh is quickly becoming a hub for sustainability-focused technology and innovation. The city's commitment to green growth is attracting climate-conscious companies and spurring fresh ideas. Pittsburgh now ranks #2 in green buildings and 3rd overall among U.S. cities leading the sustainability movement.

Key programs propelling Pittsburgh's green transformation include:

The Green Growth Partnership - A collaboration between leaders in sustainability, government, nonprofits, and anchor institutions to reduce environmental impact.

The Pittsburgh Climate Action Plan 3.0 - A renewed focus on equitable climate solutions citywide through 2030.

These initiatives and others are establishing Pittsburgh as a launchpad for green entrepreneurs and investors. As business interest and activity grow around renewable energy, efficient buildings, clean mobility, and more, new legal needs emerge.
