GSA OGP’s Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings (www.gsa.gov/hpgb) has just released its Green Building Certification Systems review report. This report is the first step in an extensive review process — including a public comment period – that evaluates tools that could help federal agencies meet their goals for maintaining and constructing more sustainable and efficient buildings. The findings of this process will help government agencies meet federal requirements for green construction, save taxpayer dollars and meet the goals of President Obama’s Executive Order on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance (EO 13514). The full report is available at http://www.gsa.gov/gbcertificationreview and the press release is available here.
This report also will be a major topic at the second Green Building Advisory Committee (GBAC) meeting which is coordinated by the Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings in accordance with The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA). The GBAC will be held on May 9, 2012 from 9:30am to 4:00 pm at 1331 F Street, NW, Suite 800 in Washington, DC. It is open to the public, as a Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) meeting. Agenda and meeting materials will be posted on the GBAC site. Questions about the Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings or the GBAC may be sent to email@example.com. We look forward to your feedback and comments.
