SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS FELLOW
Jake organized an event to train businesses on how to measure their energy usage and energy reductions. This involved working with the EPA and their contractor Cadmus and securing rooms and meals through Point Park University, and promoting the event. A total of 32 individuals attended. This event may lead to a future Green Office Challenge in the Pittsburgh Region.
Recently Jake has written an article that is being published in Table magazine’s summer issue title “Water’s Role in Sustainability.” On May 27th he attended a meeting with Marc Mathieu of BeDo Inc and the Rachel Carson Celebration of Biodiversity. He has also facilitated meetings for the Business Climate Coalition and its subcommittees.
Outside of Sustainable Pittsburgh, Jake has continued to volunteer with the Hazelwood Food Forest. Here he has been helping the group clear a vacant lot, improve soil quality, and plant fruit trees. He also has met with Dr. Stoddard of Duquesne University to talk about the project his class completed in Hazelwood which involved assessing the community and helping them construct an outdoor classroom.
