GSA makes progress on greening the fleet
Monday - 10/31/2011, 10:33am EDT
Perhaps its letters stand for Green Services Administration?
GSA Chief of Staff Michael Robertson with Federal Drive Anchor Tom Temin at the 2011 Green Gov Symposium.
Robertson traced GSA's robust green role to a 2009 executive order, which gave the agency a "broad opportunity to help the government move to the green space," he said.
He provided an update of GSA's electric vehicles pilot, which aims to reduce the overall number of vehicles in the federal fleet and also bring in more fuel-efficient ones. As the latest piece of that initiative, GSA purchased 116 electric cars to be used by federal agencies across the country, he said.
Just last week, the Treasury Department and the Navy were the recipients of the first tranche of those vehicles.
