Pitt awarded “green” honors

For the third consecutive year, The Princeton Review has included Pitt in its “Guide to 332 Green Colleges.”

The Princeton Review’s Pitt profile says Pitt’s new steam plant will “ultimately reduce steam-related greenhouse gas through its state-of-the-art emission control technology.” Also noted was the fact that Pitt is pursuing LEED certification for 10 projects; three campus projects already have achieved LEED Gold status.

The Princeton Review surveyed administrators at hundreds of colleges in 2013. To be eligible for inclusion, schools had to have a Green Rating of at least 83 out of a possible 99. The Princeton Review did not include Green Ratings in this year’s edition.

According to a news release announcing the publication of the guide, The Princeton Review analyzed data from the survey about the schools’ course offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation programs to measure the schools’ commitment to the environment and to sustainability.
