By addressing climate risks, GSA is creating innovative economic opportunities that advance clean energy goals, create jobs, develop healthy and prosperous communities, and save taxpayer money. GSA has committed to 100 percent renewable electricity sources for its federally-owned real estate portfolio by 2025. This is an important first step towards the federal government's commitment to 100 percent 24/7 carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035.
