The Black And Gold City Goes Green
About Us

Here at the Black and Gold City Goes Green campaign, we know that small actions add up to make a big difference.

The Black And Gold City Goes Green campaign launched in March 2009 by Citizens for Pennsylvania's Future (PennFuture) and acts as the action plan of the Pittsburgh Climate Initiative. The PCI raises awareness and engages Pittsburgh's residents, businesses, government and institutions of higher learning in taking concrete actions that reduce heat-trapping gas and air pollution and its impact on our local economy and human health.

The Black and Gold City Goes Green is showing Pittsburgh neighbors how their actions add up to help make our region even cooler. Share what you're doing to make your home, workplace, and community greener in the "My Actions" section and see how you are cutting heat-trapping gas in our region. Pittsburghers are finding out that our region's poor air quality is literally killing us -- we're helping you fight back. See how your actions are also reducing air pollution that affects the well-being of you, your family, and our community.

The Black and Gold City Goes Green keeps you connected. Sign up to report your actions and we'll send you information each month on featured green topics. Follow or friend us for up-to-the-minute updates.
