EPA ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager

The Sustainable Pittsburgh Challenge encourages participants to use EPA's ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to track and measure progress, and to earn points in the Waste, Energy, and Water action categories. ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is a free platform that allows organizations to measure:

  • Energy use
  • Water use
  • Waste output and diversion from landfill

How-to Guides and Learning Resources

Using Portfolio Manager enables your organization to identify trends and track positive progress in energy, water and waste reduction. Organizations participating in the Sustainable Pittsburgh Challenge can earn points for entering data, sharing data with Sustainable Pittsburgh, and keeping data up-to-date throughout the competition. Sustainable Pittsburgh awards additional points for achieving measurable progress in any of these three sustainability performance areas, as measured with the Portfolio Manager tool. The Challenge team has compiled a list of resources to help your organization get started:
