Lean Six Sigma Certification and its Value

Thu, 2014-04-10 09:28

Most people who have heard about Six Sigma Certification are aware that its origin is somewhat unconventional.

Do Carbon Offsets Work?

Tue, 2014-03-18 14:29

Unfortunately, the answer is not as simple as yes or no. Whether or not the offsets you purchase actually decrease your greenhouse gas emissions depends on what you buy. There are schemes out there that simply take your money and never make a contribution toward carbon reduction projects. Other programs may only offset a portion of your emissions and pocket most of your contribution. These are the types of schemes that give carbon offsets a bad name.

Innovation in Sustainability

Fri, 2013-02-08 11:20

Most of us know the narrative that guides the typical sustainability discussion. More often than not, it can be summated by everyone’s favorite three-step process: reduce, reuse, recycle. Don’t get me wrong – that’s certainly not a bad thing. These three words stand as a catchy, assonant reminder for the easiest ways we can stymie our wastefulness. That said, they only represent a surface-level explanation of all the incredible things going on in sustainability circles right now.

Pittsburgh, PA is known for many things: three rivers, 446 bridges, steel mills, the Carnegies, Mr. Rogers, Heinz Ketchup, and of course, their stellar sports teams (Go Steelers!). What many people don’t know is that Pittsburgh has a legacy of leadership in energy innovation dating back to the first commercial oil well in 1859.
