Myers Verde Company provides on-site workshops, webinars and customized training on the Guiding Principles and compliance assessment to all Federal Agencies 

Executive Order 13514 requires at least 15% of each agency’s existing facilities and building leases (above 5,000 gross square feet) to meet the High Performance and Sustainable Buildings (HPSB) Guiding Principles by the end of fiscal year 2015. To meet this goal, most agencies must upgrade at least some portion of their existing building stock.  A separate set of HPSB Guiding Principles were developed for new construction and existing buildings. The HPSB Guiding Principles for Existing Buildings  has been incorporated into the Federal High Performance Sustainable Buildings Checklist (or Guiding Principles Checklist), now available through EPA’s ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager, an interactive web-based tool that allows users to track and assess energy and water consumption across entire building portfolios.
