Pierce County is up for the challenge
In 2010, Pierce County became an ENERGY STAR partner, which was a
declaration of our commitment to reducing energy consumption. Through
this partnership we have pledged to consistently benchmark our energy
performance, implement a plan or policy to reduce energy use, and
educate Pierce County staff about energy conservation.
Pierce County has also signed on to the International Facilities
Management Association’s (IFMA) Energy Challenge, which is a national
call-to-action for a reduction in energy use of 15%. To further support
energy reduction Pierce County has also taken the Northwest Plug Load
Pledge that demonstrates their commitment to procuring energy efficient
products and reducing negative environmental impact.
