GSA Sustainability Program
April 18
10:00am-11:00am
Buyer/Vendor Lounge
Regional Administrator Ruth Cox will discuss how the U.S. General Services Administration in the Pacific Rim Region is transforming the federal community into a more sustainable government and how private sector vendors play a strategic role in that transformation. GSA Pacific Rim is developing a comprehensive tactical approach to accomplish national strategic sustainability goals. The region encompasses California, Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii, Japan, South Korea and the U.S. Territories of Guam and Saipan. This breakout will describe the Regional Sustainability Plan whose five focus areas are greening buildings, transportation (fleet), and the supply chain, transforming government workspace, and fostering sustainable communities. It will highlight the Green Proving Ground program, which leverages GSA’s real estate portfolio to evaluate innovative and sustainable building technologies. The program aims to drive innovation in environmental performance of federal buildings and help lead market transformation through deployment of new technologies. Increasing opportunities for communication between the private and public sector is a key driver in successfully greening the government. Ms. Cox will cover current outreach efforts and discuss more expanded initiatives to reach all sectors of the industry and how GSA is engaging small businesses and disadvantaged socioeconomic companies in doing business with the Federal Government.
