Welcome! The Sustainable Pittsburgh Shop program is a program developed for small retail owners in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Building on the successes of the Sustainable Small Business Designation Program, this revamped program will:
  • Introduce you, the business owner, to new practices you can implement in your business.
  • Inform consumers about the sustainability practices you're already engaging in.
This program is designed with small retail or "mom-and-pop" small businesses in mind. To derive the maximum benefit, participating businesses should:
  • Have at least one established storefront location in southwestern Pennsylvania or is a purveyor of goods produced in southwestern Pennsylvania
  • Have no more than 50 locations nationwide
  • Have 0-50 employees at each participating location
  • Be an independently owned business
  • Derive at least 75% of revenues from offerings NOT including tobacco, gasoline, and/or pornographic material
No two businesses are the same; with that in mind the program provides varying small retailers the opportunity to achieve sustainable business designation. Simply complete the series of questions and criteria to qualify your business for one of four sustainable business designation levels:
  • Bronze: 30 – 75 points Bronze
  • Silver: 76 – 130 points Silver
  • Gold: 131 – 179 points Gold
  • Platinum: 180+ points Platinum 
Tips before You Get Started:
Allow for about 30 minutes for the online self-assessment. Your progress is not automatically saved, so be sure to keep your survey’s browser window open until you’ve finished. The online assessment will score your results at the end, but the final results will be evaluated by Sustainable Pittsburgh.
