Sharing information within a community of real estate professionals
January Event - Sustainability in Federal Real Estate
Please join the Federal Real Property Association (FRPA) on Friday, January 22nd from 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 ET for a webinar featuring Sustainability in Federal Real Estate.
This will be a complimentary webinar session offered to government and private sector FRPA members only. Current members will receive a link via email to register for the event.
The Federal government works in close partnership with the private sector to deliver its real estate mission through new construction, repairs and alterations, leasing, and facilities management. The General Services Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Army Corps of Engineers are among the primary Federal agencies who rely upon general contractors, architectural and engineering firms, and the development community to meet their facilities requirements. The Federal Government's real estate portfolio is vast and diverse -- comprised of more than 267,000 buildings across the United States. Such a large real estate portfolio results in an enormous amount of energy consumption. With annual spending on utilities that exceeds $7 billion, the Federal Government is the nation's largest energy consumer. As the impact of climate change becomes increasingly apparent, Federal buildings can be more energy efficient, more resilient to the effects of climate change, and become healthier places in which to work.
The January program of the Federal Real Property Association will focus on Sustainability in Federal Real Estate. The session will examine how the Federal Government has prioritized environmental stewardship in managing the Federal real estate portfolio over the past decade and will focus on how policy has evolved across multiple Administrations. The conversation will also consider how Government action often sets the standard for best practices and innovation in the private sector.
Speakers will include:
• Christine Harada - Former Federal Chief Sustainability Officer under the Obama Administration • Richard Kidd - Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy and Environment • Sara Neff - Senior Vice President for Sustainability, Kilroy Realty Corporation The program will also feature a video message from Dian Titus (D-NV), Chairwoman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings and Emergency Management (pending).
The session will be moderated by Genevieve Hanson, Principal, Corporate Real Estate Practice, at Ernst and Young and FRPA Board Member. The session is complimentary for FRPA members. Given the on-going restrictions related to the pandemic, this will be a virtual session and will provide an opportunity for questions from the audience.
This event has been structured with the intent that it complies with Congressional and Executive Branch ethics rules regarding Widely Attended Events and Gatherings.
