The Pittsburgh region is making progress. In recent years, we have
witnessed the results of many people’s hard work over the course of
a generation. Through the “Great Recession” and beyond, our econ-
omy has outperformed that of the nation as a whole, and we have at-
tracted global attention and significant business investment. In 2012,
Site Selection magazine ranked our region third in the nation in the
total number of significant business attractions and expansions,
showing that business decision-makers’ interest in Pittsburgh has
never been higher.
At the same time, the Allegheny Conference recognizes that our re-
gion still has much work ahead. People and places have been left be-
hind despite our economic recovery, and there is an emerging skills
gap between the needs of employers and those looking for work. To
fully realize our potential, we must address these disparities.
In pursuit of “Sustainable Prosperity” for everyone who lives here,
the Allegheny Conference has organized its agenda to advance three
strategic priorities: Enhancing Opportunity by building on our
strengths to connect businesses and individuals to opportunity;
Strengthening Communities by removing governmental barriers that
prevent communities from realizing their potential; and Energizing
Tomorrow’s Economy by seeking competitive tax and regulatory
policies and reinforcing our region’s leadership as the New Center
of American Energy.
In this, the first year of our 2012-2014 agenda, we are moving for-
ward and making a positive impact. We share our successes in the
pages that follow. Yet competing regions are working just as hard to
improve their economies and quality of life. We must continue to
improve our competitiveness if we wish to build upon the foundation
we have established. The good news is our region is operating from
a position of strength. By working together we can succeed.
Charles E. Bunch
Chair, Allegheny Conference on Community Development
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, PPG Industries
2012: Working For Sustainable Prosperity

The Pittsburgh region is home to the nation’s first oil and gas wells, its first com-
mercial nuclear reactor, a historically rich coal seam and now the expansive
Marcellus Shale natural gas play. In recent years we have emerged as the
NewCenter of American Energy, with nationally-leading strengths across
seven energy industries including coal, natural gas, nuclear, solar, wind,
transmission and distribution, and intelligent building.
A recently completed occupational analysis commissioned by the Al-
legheny Conference and the EnergyAlliance of Greater Pittsburgh exam-
ined the industry’s future workforce needs. It identified 14 “Target Jobs” in seven
energy sectors that are already difficult to fill and will remain in high demand
through at least 2020. Employers across the 10 counties of southwestern Penn-
sylvania said eight of the 14 jobs require certificate and/or two-year degrees and
five require a four-year degree. Only one occupation requires just a high school
diploma or GED.
In Greater Pittsburgh’s 32 counties, the energy sector has an annual $25 billion
direct and indirect economic impact, representing 15 percent of its economy,
according to the Pennsylvania Economy League of Greater Pittsburgh, the Al-
legheny Conference’s research affiliate. More than 60,000 people are employed
in direct energy jobs at 1,700 establishments. And upwards of $1 billion in en-
ergy-related R&Dis made annually through the region’s companies, universities
and such government entities as the National Energy Technology Laboratory
(NETL) and Bettis Atomic Lab.
This all has sent positive ripples across our economy, and kept us buoyant despite
a national recession. But challenges are on the horizon in our ability to connect
local people with the skills needed to fill jobs that are available now, and the
many more to come.
The employers surveyed expect demand for talent to fill the “Target Jobs” to
grow, and competition for them to be felt across other sectors, especially ad-
vanced manufacturing. Employers could see tens of thousands of openings
between nowand 2020, with about 60 percent of these openings the result of
Baby Boomer retirements and normal attrition. And that’s just among these
14 occupations.
The Allegheny Conference and the Energy Alliance will continue to bring
attention and engagement to this challenge, but business must lead. We need
employers to do a better job of marketing these as high-paying, rewarding ca-
reers, and in creating and supporting partnerships with and among regional
secondary, technical and community colleges, providing learning tracks for
the in-demand jobs that include job shadowing and internships. To get
involved, contact Conference Senior Vice President Laura Fisher at

workforce study. You can watch them all at

In 2010 theAllegheny Conference helped to develop ShaleNET, a comprehen-
sive recruitment, training, placement and retention programfor jobs in the gas
industry throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio, NewYork and West Virginia. The $5
million federal grant for that program, implemented at Williamsport’s Penn-
sylvania College of Technology and such local partners as Westmoreland
County Community College, has helped put more than 1,100 people to work.
On Sept. 19 the U.S. Department of Labor announced a new$14.9 million grant
to expand the programto five states, with hubs in Texas and Ohio – and greatly
extending the reach of Pennsylvania’s existing ShaleNET program. Four hub
colleges will develop standardized curriculum for five widely employed occu-
pations: process technicians; petroleum technicians; field automation techni-
cians; pipeline/distribution operators; and industrial maintenance technicians –
also among the 14 “Target Jobs” identified in our workforce analysis.
More than one billion dollars of R&D flows through our region every year,
much of it through the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). To
demonstrate broad support for NETL’s mission and goals, the Greater Pitts-
burgh Chamber has assembled a “Friends of NETL” coalition. To learn more

Not onlydoes our regionhave nationally-leadingstrengths across sevendifferent
energy-related industries, we are organized to develop newenergy solutions that
cut across sectors. To encourage this collaboration, the Allegheny Conference
and Innovation Works established the Energy Alliance of Greater Pittsburgh.
About 100 organizations, representing business, non-profits, government and
higher educationare workingtogether to increase the scale of the region’s energy
industry, create and retain jobs, attract investment across a portfolioof energy-re-
lated assets and advance our global leadership in environmental sustainability.
EAGP is staffed by the Allegheny Conference and Innovation Works, which is
investing in a portfolio of 17 energy-related companies and connecting entrepre-
neurs, researchers and funders through its EnergyMatch mixers. Learn more at
Downstream Opportunities Emerging
Shell Chemicals’ proposed petrochemical complex near Monaca, Beaver
County, would be the single largest “from the ground up” industrial in-
vestment in the Pittsburgh region in a generation. This multi-billion dollar
facility, known as an ethane cracker, would break down large molecules
from natural gas into smaller ones to produce plastics and other manufac-
turing materials. A recent analysis by the Pennsylvania Economy League
of Greater Pittsburgh determined the facility would support 18,000 direct,
indirect and induced jobs in the peak year of its construction phase, and be-
tween 2,000 and 8,000 jobs when operational. Find answers to frequently

SUSTAINABLE PROSPERITY: Enhancing Opportunity,
Strengthening Communities and Energizing Tomorrow’s Economy
In 2013, we will continue to advance our agenda for “Sustainable Prosperity” with its three strategic priorities. We will Enhance Opportunity by connecting
businesses and individuals to opportunity, Strengthen Communities by working to remove governmental barriers that prevent communities fromrealizing their
potential and Energize Tomorrow’s Economy by seeking competitive tax and regulatory policies and reinforcing our region’s leadership as the New Center of
American Energy. Along with our efforts around energy noted elsewhere in this publication, we will continue work on numerous initiatives in support of these
strategies. Below are a few highlights. Learn more at

Transit/Transportation Funding
Reliable, robust public transit is vital if
our regional economy is to thrive. We
will continue to urge legislators to take
up the realistic, achievable funding solu-
tions that would meet the long-term
needs of the state’s transportation assets,
outlined by Governor Corbett’s Trans-
portation Funding Advisory Commis-
sion (TFAC) report.
Water Economy Network
Drawing on our region’s strong industry base of 3,000+ water companies,
the Allegheny Conference through its Pittsburgh Regional Alliance affiliate
will continue its work as a founding partner of the Water Economy Network.
The network helps existing businesses access new water-related opportuni-
ties and encourages new business ventures and job creation. Learn more at
Drawing upon research sponsored by the Team Pennsylvania Foun-
dation and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic
Development (which also provide a financial grant for the initiative),
the Pittsburgh Impact Initiative is helping local companies – partic-
ularly women and minority-owned firms – to thrive and strengthen
the regional economy by
• Communicating through active outreach and continued updates
on issues that matter to local businesses.
• Connecting these firms to economic development resources,
business development opportunities and talent.
• Championing Impact companies’ successes through the
Conference's traditional and social/new media channels,
including Our Region's Business weekly TV show, the blog and other profile-raising
opportunities for business development and talent attraction.
In support of these goals, the Pittsburgh Impact Initiative has
• Established a partnership with Buy Pittsburgh First
(, which is connecting industrial
businesses with regional suppliers and service providers to
keep business spending close to home.
• Re-launched the Business Quick Guide as a one-stop website
( to match businesses to the
economic development

Five Challenges We Must Address to Keep
Our Region Moving Forward
As noted throughout this publication, these are relatively good times for the Pittsburgh region. Although the unemployment rate has edged up,
interest in our region among business decision makers remains strong. At the same time, we cannot take our successes for granted.
Five important challenges will top our priority list as we head toward the new year.
Skills Gap
In the aftermath of the Great Recession, with unemployment at unacceptably high rates, employers in our region have largely been able to find the
skilled workers they have needed to grow their organizations. But that is changing and a skills gap is emerging. Thousands of jobs are unfilled across
the 10 counties, and a recent report by the Allegheny Conference and the Energy Alliance of Greater Pittsburgh indicates that tens of thousands more
jobs may become available between now and the end of the decade in 14 critical energy-related occupations. Industry must create awareness of this
opportunity and partner with schools engaged in workforce development if increasing demand is to be met.
Transit and Transportation Funding Crisis
Allegheny County and metropolitan Pittsburgh averted a crisis this summer when Port Authority management, labor and state, county and local
governments together crafted a temporary solution to keep the buses and trains rolling into 2013. But it is only a one-year fix. If the Commonwealth
does not develop a permanent solution for the broader transportation challenge that also includes deteriorating roads, bridges, rails and ports, we will
find ourselves in the same position next summer. In the meantime, this uncertainty has a chilling effect on business location decisions.
The Governor and the legislature need to take up the recommendations of the Transportation Funding Advisory Commission and develop a solution.
Site Shortage
Our region is running low on “shovel-ready” sites. Over the past decade, with the support of the “Business in Our Sites” program,
we were able to secure state investment in infrastructure that prepared thousands of acres of business sites for development.
Located in all 10 counties, many of these sites are already fully occupied. Without shovel-ready inventory, employers
will go – and in some cases already have gone – elsewhere. Given the special challenges of our terrain and the
additional expense of replacing aging infrastructure, this is an issue the public sector must address.
Capital Squeeze
Over the past generation we have invested in the innovators and entrepreneurs pouring out of our region’s 36
colleges and universities to create hundreds of new companies in our key industry sectors. That’s because we have
a strong network of support organizations that work with entrepreneurs and early-stage companies, among them
Innovation Works, the Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse, the Pittsburgh Technology Council and the Idea
Foundry. To turn innovative ideas into new companies, we rely on the availability of venture capital, which of late
has been in increasingly short supply, especially home-grown venture capital funds that are more likely to keep
startups in our region as they grow. It is critically important to identify new sources of such venture funding.
Pension and Binding Arbitration Concerns
The Commonwealth is home to one-quarter of all the municipal pension plans in the nation, many
of which are chronically underfunded. Pennsylvania’s one-sided binding arbitration law perpetually esca-
lates the cost of public safety services. Pension and binding arbitration reform can help secure the fiscal
sustainability of our municipalities. Without such reforms, our local governments will continue to re-
duce services and raise taxes as they struggle to meet the basic needs of their
residents and businesses.
We have built a strong foundation to tackle these challenges. We have the tools we need.
Now we must find the will. Together we can assure sustainable prosperity for our region.
