So post yesterday was how I and I am sure everyone is starting get bombarded with this message so today in my inbox from USGBC I get these stats.
- 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
And they are holding the USGBC 2010 Federal Summit, May 18-19 2010 in DC
Next thing I will look into are the top 10 items in sustainable retrofits. As always input welcome.
