Federal Summit 2010: Leadership in Sustainability from Coast to Coast
May 18-19, 2010
Washington, D.C.

We in the green building industry must step up and make sustainable design, construction and retrofits central to our nation’s economic recovery. The government sector is a significant part of the job growth and economic promise of green building. You can be part of that growth!

  • Much of the $787 billion in federal stimulus money supports green retrofits of publicly owned buildings at the local, state and federal levels.
  • The federal government alone owns and operates some 500,000 buildings.
  • The federal government has a 28 percent greenhouse gas reduction target for federal operations by 2020.
  • 30 percent of all LEED projects are government-owned.
