Sustainability and Innovation Mark the Conclusion of GovEnergy

August 18, 2010

Commissioner Peck wrapped up the GovEnergy conference on Aug. 18 with a message on how GSA is driving sustainability in its building portfolio by reducing energy consumption, water consumption, and carbon emissions; and lowering operating costs. This includes how GSA is serving as a green proving ground for innovative energy technologies.

GSA stayed true to its core initiatives by becoming one of the many partners for the three-day conference that unfolded at the Dallas Conference Center, a green venue. The conference earned the Leonardo Academy's Cleaner and Greener platinum certification level for calculating and offsetting its greenhouse gas emissions and implementing sustainable practices. These included using biodegradable supplies, keeping venues within walking distance, and saving resources by conserving hotel cleaning services.
