GSA’s Green Building Advisory Committee Recommends LEED for All GSA Buildings

The Green Building Advisory Committee established by the General Services Administration (GSA) has officially recommended to GSA that the LEED green building certification system be used for all GSA buildings as the best measure of building efficiency, according to a release from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

The Green Building Advisory Committee has evaluated more than 160 tools and systems since it began in 2011, and in February, GSA released a request for information (RFI) regarding green building certification systems.

“GSA has been a leader in energy and sustainability, and we are thrilled to see the leaders in the public and private sectors continue to recommend LEED as the best choice for GSA to maintain its leadership status while improving sustainability, reducing energy and saving money for its buildings,” says Roger Platt, senior vice president of global policy and law for USGBC. “Consensus-based and market-driven, LEED has been and continues to be invaluable to thousands of building professionals and remains the best option for the GSA and any governmental agency looking to save taxpayer dollars and increase energy efficiency.”
