Arlington County’s building inventory totals over 2 million square feet of floor area. Energy used in these buildings account for most of the greenhouse gas emissions related to Arlington’s government operations. Between 2009-2010, the County cut total energy use in its buildings by 3.7%.
Check out the Building Energy Report Cards to learn more about energy use in each of our buildings. Additionally, as of October 2011, the County started displaying Energy Performance Labels in select County buildings. Keep an eye out at buildings including:

Arlington County is committed to reducing emissions from government operation by 10% by 2012, from a 2000 baseline. We are striving to reach this goal with efforts focused on buildings, transportation (fleet and infrastructure), employee engagement, and our continued development of the County’s Community Energy Plan.
