Leading By Example: Using Information and Communication Technologies to Achieve Federal Sustainability Goals

The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions has just completed a white paper including case studies on sustainability practices across the federal government. The paper highlights GSA's work in the areas of workspace modernization, print management, cloud computing and green building/energy reduction measures.

Here's an extract of the Executive Summary:

"Led by the General Services Administration (GSA)...these government-wide efforts are changing the way federal departments and agencies operate. They represent the intersection of two critically important forces driving agency behavior today. Increasingly stringent budget constraints are pushing agencies to take a hard look at ways they can reduce costs and enhance efficiencies. At the same time, new Executive Orders and Congressional actions are mandating that agencies alter their practices to become more sustainable. These two forces have come together to create new opportunities for the government to change in important ways that produce multiple benefits for individual agencies and for the public they serve."
