Scor3card Gold Award

Sustainability is not an Olympic sport, but achieving a Gold award in this field takes an Olympic-sized level of dedication as demonstrated in PSO's earning Gold in Sustainable Tulsa's annual Scor3card evaluation.

The Scor3card is Tulsa’s business sustainability assessment tracking tool with the focus on people, profit, and planet. Sustainable Tulsa created the Scor3card in 2016 to support Tulsa area businesses. In 2017, PSO achieved the Silver Award by completing 69 of 153 Scor3card items. This year PSO finalized a total 92 items enabling it to achieve Gold.

In addition, several PSO customers, including Tulsa Community College and the University of Tulsa, credited PSO as a contributor to their sustainability achievements through their participation in PSO’s energy efficiency programs.

Earning a Scor3card Sustainability award requires meeting rigorous performance standards. Companies that meet the standards report an overall improvement in financial savings, employee engagement, efficiency and waste reduction.

Currently, there are 80 participants including businesses, government, institutions of higher education, environmental organizations, Native American tribes, health care providers, sports teams, and more.
