Washington, D.C., February 18, 2013--The
Department of Defense has released the findings of an independent report on
energy efficiency and sustainability standards used by the Pentagon for military
construction. The report strongly affirmed the value of LEED-certified high
performing buildings to America’s military and U.S. taxpayers. By using LEED, the Department of Defense is able to cut costs responsibly
without endangering our nation’s military readiness.
