About Us

Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit in Southwestern Pennsylvania working for a healthy, sustainable environment. Founded in 1969, GASP has been a diligent watchdog, educator, litigator, and policy-maker on many environmental issues, with a focus on air quality in the Pittsburgh region.

Our Mission

The Group Against Smog and Pollution was founded in 1969 by volunteers concerned about air quality in southwestern Pennsylvania. Since then, GASP has worked tirelessly to explain and combat our air quality problems through public meetings, engagement with the press, educational events, permit reviews, and many other means.

 

During these years, GASP has participated on various county, state, and national boards, with stakeholder groups, and on environmental policy committees. Occasionally GASP presses its goals with litigation, having brought action related to requiring Allegheny County to adopt pollution standards based on the Clean Air Act, enforcement of air quality standards at the Clairton Coke Works, LTV Corporation’s air quality violations at the firm’s former Hazelwood plant, DTE’s long-standing air quality infractions at its former Neville Island Shenango coke plant, and a number of other instances.

 

GASP has received many awards and has been mentioned in magazines, local and national television and radio, and newspapers throughout the country.

 

In 2020, GASP completed a strategic plan, setting our priorities and goals through 2023. You can read more here.
