Thanks to all who attended and participated in Blue, Gold and Green 2010! We will be posting pictures from the event in the next few weeks so be sure to check back. And don’t forget to keep an eye out for information about next year’s festival as we are already planning for 2011 and will post more information in the upcoming months!
As part of the ongoing commitment by the University of Pittsburgh towards environmental stewardship, Supplier Management, Purchasing Services, and the Office of Budget and Controller have developed and published Commodity Specific Guidelines for computers, paper, and cleaning products. These guidelines will help facilitate an increased awareness of renewable versus non-renewable resources and provide the means by which University staff, faculty, and students will be better able to evaluate their own purchases in terms of how the decisions made today may influence the quality of life and the quantity of resources available in the future.
