The GWC is a yearlong competition for businesses, nonprofits, municipalities, and universities in southwestern PA to track and measure improvements in energy, water, waste, and transportation. The 51 active participants saved enough energy to power over 3,000 homes for a year and enough water that 57 typical U.S. households use in a year. Over 4,821 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent were reduced, which translates to roughly 121 airline flights of 500 miles. More information on the GWC is available at www.gwcpgh.org
