GLRPPR Sector Resource: Minimizing Energy and Environmental Impacts of Federally-Funded Research

Title:
Minimizing Energy and Environmental Impacts of Federally-Funded Research

Abstract:
As follow-up to the 2014 DOE Better Buildings case competition on "Greening the Grant Process for Research Institutions," this meeting focused on ways to connect sustainability to federally supported research. This has the dual benefit of reducing the environmental footprint of research, and maximizing the effective use of federal dollars in research budgets.

The objectives of the meeting were:

  • To raise awareness that greening of grants not only benefits reducing the environmental footprint of research but also benefits efficient, effective use of federal dollars to maximize research funded with federal research budgets.
  • To share what initial actions are underway to begin to connect sustainability to research finances by federal agencies and universities
  • To provide the opportunity for representatives from various federal agencies and universities to connect on this subject and discuss ways to connect sustainability to federal research funding.

The site includes a summary of discussions held at the meeting and links to presentations.
