    Live Webinar
    Great Lakes Region Sustainability Plan 2020
    Presented by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA)

    Join us to learn about the GSA's ambitious plan to reduce the environmental impact of the federal government and eliminate its own carbon footprint.

    The Great Lakes Region incorporates sustainable practices into the entire life-cycle of federally-owned and leased assets, from design and construction to building management, renovation, and disposal. Our goal is to share this plan with similar minded people to educate and encourage sustainable communities.

    The plan focuses on five key areas of sustainability integral to GSA's mission:
    1. Effectively design, construct, renovate, and operate Sustainable Buildings that consume less energy and water; use clean, renewable sources of electricity; and integrate innovative energy and water efficiency technologies, thus reducing the total cost of ownership.
    2. Reduce the real estate and environmental footprint of the federal government by leading a Workplace Transformation, allowing the workforce to work productively from anywhere at anytime.
    3. Reduce the cost and environmental impact of our Transportation programs and activities by reducing the size of the federal fleet, increasing the use of alternative fuels, promoting innovations such as plug-in electric/hybrid vehicles, utilizing technology to reduce the need for business travel, and promoting mobility solutions to reduce costs and environmental impacts of employee commuting.
    4. Integrate a “cradle to cradle” commitment throughout the Supply Chain and increase the availability and quantity of environmentally preferable products and services that GSA offers to federal agencies.
    5. Leverage the market influence and expertise of the federal government to assist in building Sustainable Communities with strong small business-based economies and high levels of citizen engagement.
