US Army Releases 2007 Sustainability Report
Energy conservation has been moving up the Pentagon’s agenda for several years now. The U.S. Army released its 2007 Sustainability Report in September 2008. In FY 2007, 301 new Army military construction projects, or 78% of projects, were designed to The US Green Building Council’s LEED standards for sustainability and energy efficiency. That’s substantially higher than private-sector figures. The Army also reported an 8.4% reduction in energy use intensity in facilities from FY 2004.
