As part of our ongoing mission to enrich Pittsburgh and the tri-state area, Pittsburgh Opera has begun a new green initiative committed to environmental stewardship and ongoing sustainability.
The primary focus of this new initiative is to obtain a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Operations and Maintenance Certification for our new headquarters in the historic George Westinghouse Air Brake Factory in the Strip District. In addition to the efforts to prepare the headquarters for certification, the initiative will also educate Pittsburgh Opera staff members on living "greener" lifestyles through decreased carbon footprints and personal health improvement and maintenance.
To schedule a tour or interview regarding the Green Initiative, please contact Pittsburgh Opera Facility Manager Shawn Fertitta at (412) 281-0912 ext. 257.
