SUSTAINABILITY UPDATES

Jason Baguet toured a sustainable community while attending the ASCE EWRI World Congress in Minneapolis. Located five miles northeast of downtown Minneapolis, the City of St. Anthony Village is a leader in the state on sustainability and storm water best practices. The City’s mission is to be a progressive and livable community and recently received an award for its “Sustainable City Through Collaboration” program. The tour was led by the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization.


On January 1st, Sci-Tek kicked off its first-year participation in the Sustainable Pittsburgh Challenge. The Sustainable Pittsburgh Challenge is a friendly, yearlong competition for businesses, nonprofits, universities, K-12 schools, and municipalities in southwestern Pennsylvania to track and measure improvements in energy, water, waste, transportation and other sustainability activities. 

* Sci-Tek is currently in THIRD PLACE in the small business category.
