Extended Deadline: Set Your Materials Management Baseline by 10/31/18
Don’t miss out on earning points for reducing your organization’s waste-related impacts! The Sustainable Pittsburgh Challenge has expanded action MM2: Enter your materials management baseline quarter for organizations to compare any two quarters of Materials Management data. Now, your organization may set a Materials Management baseline by October 31, 2018.
To set your Materials Management baseline for the SP Challenge this year, ensure you have entered a complete quarter of waste data into the “Waste & Materials” tab in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Here, your organization can track waste and materials information for each of your waste streams (Recycling, Landfill, Compost, etc.). This free waste tracking tool enables users to estimate waste by volume, or to enter exact waste measurements if you have them. This provides you with the flexibility to monitor various waste streams using any measurement strategy that works for your organization, while earning points in the Challenge at the same time. Enter waste data for at least one additional quarter (which may include the final quarter, which ends January 1, 2019) to earn points for actions MM5 and / or MM6 at the end of the competition.
Don’t have an ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager account? Check out this resource page for details about how to get started. (Note: You can use the waste tracking feature in Portfolio Manager even if you do not use the energy or water tracking features.) As always, feel free to contact the SP Challenge team for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412.258-6650.
