GSA Makes Changes to Bolster Sustainability Efforts
GSA has made significant changes that will strengthen its role in helping the Obama Administration make the federal government a leader in sustainability.
First, the Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings has been moved from PBS to the Office of Governmentwide Policy. The new director will be Kevin Kampschroer, a veteran GSA official and a recognized leader in the sustainable movement.
As part of governmentwide policy, the Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings will expand its reach to provide federal agencies with measurement tools and policies to meet its sustainability mandates.
Additionally, PBS has established the position of Chief Greening Officer, a move that will advance GSA’s goal of becoming a "green proving ground" for the American building industry. The acting Chief Greening Officer will be Director Scott Conner of the Denver Federal Center in the Rocky Mountain Region.
