1st BOROUGH & 4th MUNICIPALITY IN PA TO EARN PLATINUM SUSTAINABILITY CERTIFICATION
Millvale announced today it is the first borough and the fourth municipality in Pennsylvania to earn Platinum Certification (highest performance level) through the Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification program. Millvale had previously earned Gold Certification through the program. The municipality completed the program’s rigorous assessment/checklist which tracks 131 policies and practices that define a sustainable community. In order to achieve Platinum, a municipality must provide justification in the form of web links to supporting publically available material located on the municipal website for at least 90% of their certification claims. Millvale stands out as a leading Sustainable Community by demonstrating their commitment to the performance program’s certification criteria in areas of both policy and practice.
