"We're Always Thinking Green!"
PITT OHIO's signature commitment, "We're Always There For You!" goes beyond the treatment of our employees and customers. At PITT OHIO, "We're Always Thinking Green!" as well. By actively trying to reduce our carbon footprint on the road and at our facilities, we are on the forefront in preserving our environment.
PITT OHIO is committed to improving the environmental performance of our operations in an effort to sustain a healthy planet. We treat our business practices with an environmentally conscious approach.
PITT OHIO engages in waste product and paper recycling at all of its facilities. Most recently, we began a single sort recycling program at our corporate office and Pittsburgh terminal. Some of PITT OHIO's terminals participate in Pallet Recycling Programs, which reduces costs for waste removal by recycling pallets and junk wood.
We are a SmartWay Transportation Partner
For over three years, PITT OHIO has been a SmartWay Transport Partner and has maintained its commitment to improve the environmental performance of our freight delivery operations. SmartWay Transportation was developed by the EPA to reduce air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and improve fuel efficiency.
In 2012, after the suggestion from a building maintenance employee, PITT OHIO began researching renewable energy. Later, the company partnered with The University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering to study direct current energy by way of solar panels and wind turbines. PITT OHIO built a lab for the school inside of its Pittsburgh terminal where researchers study on-site the terminals’ wind turbine and 180 solar panel activity.
