Carbon Mitigation Experts to Assess Sustainability Practices



Fairfax, Virginia, June 18, 2008 -

As part of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Green the Capitol Initiative, ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI) has been selected to provide services to develop a formal method to monitor and report efforts of the mission. The performance tracking system will help prioritize and track progress toward environmental goals, including reducing the overall carbon footprint while also improving the sustainability of practices such as implementing green procurement and ensuring best water management practices.

ICF is a leading global provider of carbon mitigation and adaptation services to companies and governments around the world, with more than 400 experts in its climate change and energy businesses. The firm’s work on the Green the Capitol Initiative will apply its sustainability services to track changes in the overall environmental footprint of the U.S. Capitol’s operations, ensuring an ongoing focus on “greening” and sustainability.

“Climate change and sustainability are some of the most pressing issues facing our country, and ICF is thrilled to be part of this important mission and provide our expertise to assist the U.S. House of Representatives to become a leader in sustainable operations and a model for the nation,” said Marian Van Pelt, an ICF principal and carbon inventory expert.
The Green the Capitol Initiative was created by the chief administrative officer of the House at the direction of the speaker and majority leader. The initiative includes broad efforts to address greenhouse gas emissions, energy efficiency, water resource management, material consumption, and indoor air quality.
