Cambio is proud to partner with the U.S. federal government on its journey to net-zero, as part of the Green Proving Ground program.

What is the Green Proving Ground program?

The Green Proving Ground program leverages GSA’s real estate portfolio to evaluate innovative building technologies. The program aims to drive down operational costs in federal buildings and help lead market transformation through the deployment of new technologies.

During remarks at the American Institute of Architects’ annual conference in San Francisco, Robin Carnahan, Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), today announced that GSA, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), will invest $30 million from the Inflation Reduction Act to increase the sustainability of federal buildings by testing novel technologies through the Green Proving Ground (GPG) program.

“GSA’s Green Proving Ground program helps unlock the technologies and cost savings we need to meet President Biden’s Federal sustainability goals, including achieving net zero emissions by 2050,” said Federal Chief Sustainability Officer Andrew Mayock, with the White House Council on Environmental Quality. “Today’s announcement is the latest action demonstrating how the Federal Government will lead by example on climate.”

The power of Cambio

For a single building Cambio can identify retrofit projects and map the building through to net-zero. But the beauty of Cambio is at scale: if we can map 1 building to net zero, then we can map hundreds or thousands of buildings at once. Click here to read more.
