Kevin Kampschroer is the Chief Sustainability Officer at the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), and the Director of the Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings. He manages all sustainability work at the GSA, including its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 53--76% by 2025. He has created the framework for which GSA responds to the challenges of greenhouse gas emissions reductions and of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s mandate to move GSA’s Federal building inventory toward high-performance green buildings.
He has devised a challenge for companies to dramatically improve the government’s ability to achieve deep retrofits through Energy Savings Performance contracts—which has doubled the amount f energy conservation from these contracts. His team manages the government’s implementation of a comprehensive improvement in the training and certification of facility managers and personnel across the entire Federal government (Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act of 2010). He is GSA’s Senior Climate Adaptation Official, and leads the agency in planning for climate change risks.
Mr. Kampschroer was the Project Manager for the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center (344 M2), and he has lectured at various universities such as MIT, Harvard, Georgia Tech, and Yale. His most recent publication as a contributing author is the first medical study showing the link between building characteristics on office worker stress and heart function-which showed the beneficial results of good lighting, natural light and IEQ. He has worked for GSA for over 39 years and is a graduate of Yale University.
