Implement Energy Efficiency Measures to Reduce Carbon Footprint and Navigate Federal Procurement Changes


The Federal Government is prioritizing clean energy and energy efficiency in its procurement process.  

The Federal Buy Clean Initiative, Executive Orders 14008 and 13990, and the proposed new rules on emissions disclosure reporting have a significant impact on government contractors. These policies require federal agencies to prioritize climate considerations in their procurement processes and review their regulations and policies to ensure they align with the new administration’s climate goals. Additionally, the Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 23.2 and the Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program provide guidance and resources for improving energy efficiency and reducing energy costs in federal facilities. 


Implement energy efficiency measures to reduce carbon emissions and increase competitiveness in federal contracting.

Implementing energy efficiency measures can help government contractors navigate these changes by reducing their carbon footprint and improving their competitiveness in bidding for federal contracts. By reducing energy consumption, contractors can decrease their emissions and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, which can help them stand out in the bidding process. 


Take advantage of utility incentives and make energy-saving upgrades even more cost-effective. 

Utility incentivized energy efficiency measures can provide a cost-effective way to implement energy-saving upgrades in your facilities. By taking advantage of these incentives, you can offset the cost of upgrades while reducing your operating costs and carbon footprint. 

Energy efficiency measures can include using sustainable materials, implementing efficient building design and construction practices, and using renewable energy sources. By implementing these measures, government contractors can reduce the carbon emissions associated with their projects and position themselves as environmentally responsible and competitive in the federal procurement process.
