CEOs for Sustainability is Launched

Recognizing the strong link between sustainable business practices and social, economic, and environmental performance, corporate CEOs from throughout the Pittsburgh region have established the CEOs for Sustainability executive council.  As an initial demonstration of their commitment, 100 percent of founding CEOs’ companies have achieved the Southwestern Pennsylvania Sustainable Business Compact On Ramp, a business sustainability performance self-assessment used to track and report progress over time.

Co-chaired by founding participants WindStax Energy CEO Ron Gdovic and Covestro LLC President Jerry MacCleary, CEOs for Sustainability provides a forum for CEOs to share best practices and collaborate in growing the ranks of businesses around the region that pursue sustainability.  The group is facilitated by Bill O’Rourke, the former Vice President of Environment, Health & Safety and Sustainability at Alcoa and a former Sustainable Pittsburgh Board Chair.

During this week’s CEOs for Sustainability executive briefing, “Bottom-Line Benefits of Corporate Sustainability”, co-hosted with the Allegheny Conference, Eat’n Park CEO Jeff Broadhurst and PITT OHIO President Chuck Hammel shared case studies on their respective companies demonstrating the advantages of sustainable business practices.
