Who Controls over 500,000 Buildings?

Did you know that the U.S. government has one of the world's largest real estate portfolios? I learned this from the USGBC's July 25 update.

The U.S. government's 505,000 buildings range from embassies to standard office buildings, hospitals to cemeteries. And the government is making moves to reduce the environmental impact of this portfolio.

The person that helps federal agencies meet ever more stringent requirements (such as the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA)) is the Federal Environmental Executive (FEE).

Read the USGBC's article on the government's role in green buildings and the transcript of their interview with Mark Ginsberg, board member of the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

On the off chance that you don't have the money related guide or grants to cover the greater part of your school costs, then begin investigating your advance alternatives at the earliest opportunity. Tackle the obligation now, as school will compensate you later on. payday loans
