Federal Sustainable Buildings Memorandum of Understanding
In This Section
At the White House Summit on Federal Sustainable Buildings on January 24, 2006, Luis A. Luna, then the EPA Assistant Administrator for the Office of Administration and Resources Management, along with representatives from 16 federal agencies, signed an MOU entitled "Federal Leadership in High Performance and Sustainable Buildings."
By signing the MOU, these federal agencies commit to design, construct, and operate their facilities in an energy-efficient and sustainable manner. EPA was already striving to meet the high standards set by the MOU—including achieving 30 percent better energy performance than ASHRAE 90.1-2004 requirements—but the new partnership solidifies the Agency's commitment to making sustainable buildings a priority.
