WASHINGTON, Dec. 2, 2010 --Through its Green Proving Ground Program, GSA is working to drive innovation in environmental performance across the agency’s building portfolio and help lead market transformation.
In support of this program, GSA is seeking information from the private sector to develop a registry of innovative technologies and practices. The new database will capture technologies and practices that optimize energy performance, protect and conserve water, enhance indoor environmental quality, reduce waste and environmental impact of materials, reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with building operations, and promote integrated design.
GSA aims to demonstrate the viability of new green technology and practices by testing and evaluating innovative solutions in its own operations and disseminating results to other federal agencies and the commercial sector.
Commercial organizations, companies, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations are invited to share their innovative building technologies and ideas.
