The Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP) is a non-profit citizens' group in Southwestern Pennsylvania working for a healthy, sustainable environment. Founded in 1969, GASP has been a diligent watchdog, educator, litigator, and policy-maker on many environmental issues, with a focus on air quality in the Pittsburgh region.
GASP focuses on environmental issues, especially air quality concerns, and believes in the public’s right to receive accurate and thorough information on these issues. GASP emphasizes honesty, scientific integrity, and responsible involvement and cooperation. The mission of GASP is “to act to obtain for the residents of Southwestern Pennsylvania clean air, water, and land in order to create the healthy, sustainable environment and quality of life to which we are entitled."
