Court Gould is Executive Director of Sustainable Pittsburgh (SP), a public-policy advocacy group that affects decision-making in the Pittsburgh Region to integrate economic prosperity, social equity, and environmental quality bringing sustainable solutions to communities and businesses. Since its inception in 1998 at the Pittsburgh Technology Council, Sustainable Pittsburgh has created a diverse coalition across sectors that assists communities and businesses to implement sustainable development practices, and collaborates to integrate sustainability, through policy and practice, into the region's process for long-term planning and development.

Sustainable Pittsburgh established and launched a collaborative model to engage the government, private, and civic sectors on key regional issues, including: smart land use, Regional Equitable Development, Transportation for Livable Communities, amenities and lifestyles, Sustainable Business Solutions, and Sustainable Community Solutions.
