Adopt the New Rules For Business

Recognizing that prosperous businesses are at the foundation of a thriving, equitable region, CEOs for Sustainability invites Southwestern Pennsylvania workplaces to commit to progress on sustainable business practices and connect to global sustainability goals. Just complete a brief, confidential baseline assessment and submit your commitment to progress, wherever your company is on the sustainability journey. By pledging, you will have the opportunity to access workshops and other resources for progress.

It only takes a few minutes. Get started today!

Savvy business leaders are the driving force behind transformational sustainability strategies, linking business sustainability performance, financial performance, and regional quality of life.  Recognizing executives’ critical role in achieving these tremendous potential benefits, CEOs from leading private-sector companies throughout the Pittsburgh region have established the CEOs for Sustainability executive council. Their vision:

CEOs for Sustainability is exemplary executive leadership and collaboration to drive positive change in the region. By demonstrating responsibility and creativity in the use of precious resources (human, natural, energy, capital and materials), we ensure enduring economic and social prosperity for our businesses and for our regional community.

Improving Business Performance and Quality of Life in the Region

Through CEOs for Sustainability, CEOs of the region’s leading companies share best sustainable business practices and collaborate in growing the ranks of those around the region that reap the benefits of a triple bottom line — for people, planet, and profits. The group is working to increase the number of businesses that practice, measure, and publicly report their sustainable business performance. The CEOs recognize that prosperous businesses are the foundation of a successful, strong region.

To demonstrate their commitment and inspire other companies in the region, 100 percent of the CEOs for Sustainability companies have achieved the Southwestern Pennsylvania Sustainable Business Compact On Ramp. Through the On Ramp, businesses can assess their sustainability performance, commit to progress, and follow a roadmap to Compact achievement.
