SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: GSA and its Federal agency partners in the EISA 436(h) Ad-hoc Discussion Group are seeking public input regarding possible approaches GSA may take to carry out its responsibilities under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA, Pub. L. 110– 140) to evaluate green building certification systems and provide a formal recommendation to the Secretary PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8145 of Energy on how green building certifications systems and related standards can be most effectively used by the Federal government to advance high performance in buildings. Section 436 of EISA requires the Director of GSA’s Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings to evaluate green building certification systems every five years to identify a system and certification level that ‘‘will be most likely to encourage a comprehensive and environmentally sound approach to the certification of green federal buildings.’’ EISA requires the GSA Administrator to provide his/ her recommendation to the Secretary of Energy, who then consults with the Secretary of Defense and the GSA Administrator, to identify the system(s) appropriate for use in the Federal sector to certify green buildings. GSA first evaluated certification systems in 2006 focusing on new construction. Based on this 2006 review, GSA recommended the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) to the Secretary of Energy for use in the Federal sector. GSA completed its most recent evaluation of green building certification systems in May 2012 focusing on certification systems for new construction, major renovations, and existing buildings. In this review, three systems were evaluated in depth: Green Building Initiative’s Green Globes (2010), U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (2009), and the International Living Building Institute’s Living Building Challenge (2011). GSA evaluated the three green building certification systems against 27 new construction and 28 existing building statutory and Executive Order requirements. The study found that Green Globes aligns with more of the Federal requirements for new construction than LEED or Living Building Challenge while LEED aligns with more of the Federal requirements for existing buildings than Green Globes or Living Building Challenge. Ultimately, the 2012 report found that none of the existing green building certification systems as designed meets all of the Federal government’s needs for high performance building metrics and conformity assessment, especially when considering the Federal sector’s statutory requirements in this area. However, better alignment between Federal requirements and green building certification system metrics and documentation could reinforce and continue the important role that green building certification systems currently play within Federal portfolios and in E:\FR\FM\05FEN1.SGM 05FEN1
