Greenifying Government, One Job at a Time

May 14, 2009

I've signed up for work as a government contractor and as such, been assigned a new email account which is connected to my government contractor listing on a website somewhere.  Already I am getting emails encouraging me, via the government contractor site, to "certify and go green!"   As if I needed any encouragement?

I do find this encouraging, if a bit stunning.  We have all heard President Barack Obama, now in the second hundred days of his administration, is making good on his promises to further environmental causes and alternative energy research.  It's amazing when you see it laid on your front door step. 
 
The most recent email is from a group offering to assist contractors and businesses with efforts to certify as a green product or service, or as having implemented a green manufacturing process.  The government wants to hire green contractors, so this group is offering an online self-certification process allowing small businesses to create a customized certification site with advertising tools as well as a "certification seal" from the group.  The company boasts being the "nation's leading certification for green business with over 45,000 certifications in the United States."
 
The government is intending to hire more green businesses and green contractors.  (Since my "business" is writing, I'm guessing all I'll need to do is use a lower-powered laptop rather than a full size PC!)  They are making it clear to contractors that the road ahead is green with opportunity. 
 
They are also offering homeowners opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of current structures and drivers to turn in gas guzzling "clunkers" for cash.  These are great opportunities to Greenify with the government's help.  Some of these Greenification efforts will save thousands of dollars over the life of the house or car.
