In this episode, GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan and Jason Walsh from the Blue Green Alliance discuss the “triple win” of sustainability, which includes creating high-quality jobs, reducing energy costs, and promoting healthier communities. Carnahan explains how GSA is working towards incorporating sustainable practices in government operations. This includes incorporating low embodied carbon materials into projects and transitioning to carbon-free electricity in its 8,000 buildings. Meanwhile, Walsh highlights the collaborative efforts between labor and environmental groups to advance sustainability. He debunks the myth that economic progress and environmental protection are mutually exclusive.
