The Sustainability Program
Allegheny Green is a comprehensive initiative to promote sustainable practices within County government through county-wide policies, programs, and green projects.
Allegheny Green focuses on external leadership activities and internal practices, specifically our physical plants and assets, how we conduct business, and the critical role of our staff. We are leading by example with programs such as the green roof demonstration project, and by setting aggressive goals for reducing energy and water consumption.
Allegheny County encourages residents, businesses, and municipalities to also implement sustainable practices that support economic interests in an environmentally appropriate and equitable manner.
Our collective goal is to reduce the County’s ecological footprint.

A new initiative for the Power of 32 is to Create a Regional Energy Plan and Strategy. The goal is to identify the region's energy future and develop strategies to assure economic competitiveness and high quality of life. A first step toward achieving this goal is the upcoming event, "Energy for the Power of 32: 32 Counties, 4 States, 1 Energy Future."
Join Sustainable Pittsburgh and the Power of 32 as a learning opportunity and to provide your input in this process. The event will feature presentations on cutting-edge energy topics; small group deliberation on regional energy issues; presentation of the region's Energy Baseline; salon style discussions; and exhibits featuring energy innovations, initiatives, and new ideas that will surprise and motivate you.
