As part of its continued commitment to upholding sustainability standards in-house, the IDB is looking at ways to reduce its GHG emissions, initially in its Washington, D.C. headquarters, to be followed soon after in its 26 Country Offices.
The IDB has also joined forces with the EPA as a Green Power Partner and ENERGY STAR partner, making complementary commitments to continue to purchase energy from a renewable source and to measure, benchmark and improve energy performance.
In 2007, the IDB received its ENERGY STAR Rating for its headquarters Building Washington, D.C., receiving 84 out of a possible 100, placing the IDB among the leaders in comparable organizations in the downtown Washington area. These two partnerships complement the IDB's commitment to the Climate Leaders program.
