Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility

Wall Street analysts are noting a growing trend of companies integrating sustainability and corporate social responsibility, known as CSR, with their traditional financial reporting. A number of Pittsburgh companies are part of that trend. Joining us to address how this is making a difference in Pittsburgh are Lauren M. Odrechowski, Corporate Social Responsibility Specialist with BNY Mellon and Matt Mehalik, program manager for Sustainable Pittsburgh.

Remaking Pittsburgh

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Allegheny Conference. The documentary "We Built This City: How the Allegheny Conference Remade Pittsburgh" chronicles the private-public partnership that transformed the city and the region. The documentary was directed by our guest Michael DiLauro. We'll also talk with Bill Flanagan Executive Vice President of the Allegheny Conference.
