Connect with the Public Sector Building Community

An Online Event Focused on a Historic Building Boom

California state government has undertaken what the Sacramento Bee has described as “a historic building boom” in Sacramento. Over the next 5 years, construction and renovation projects totaling more than $4 billion are planned.

The Department of General Services official who is overseeing most of this work told the Bee, “Something like this — this amount of square footage, this amount of resources, this amount of comprehensive refresh — I think is unprecedented.”

In a recent Executive Order, California Governor Gavin Newsom reaffirmed the state’s ambitious climate goals and required every aspect to “redouble its efforts” to reduce emissions and ordering the Department of General Services to reduce emissions from state buildings and fleets.

The path toward these goals in the sustainability roadmaps developed by each department of state government, roadmaps that set out goals and plans in key areas:

– Energy
– Green Operations
– Zero Emission Vehicles
– Climate Adaptation
– Water Efficiency and Conservation

Why do you need to be part of this event?

As the home to the world’s fifth-largest economy, California has an exceptionally powerful ability to influence practices around the country and even around the world.
