California Public Employees Retirement System (CALPERS)

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE'RE DOING

CalPERS is a steward of conservation and is committed to preserving the State's natural resources.

Executive Order B-18-12 mandates state agencies to reduce their total grid-based energy by 20% by 2018 as compared to 2003. The total energy use represented on this website reflects only part of the story. This measure does not account for the 62% increase in total square footage that CalPERS has experienced since 2003, through the acquisition of additional properties to the existing headquarters.

The total energy use only measures an increase in energy. Rather than comparing total energy usage to determine savings, a more appropriate unit of comparison, for this situation, is energy use intensity (EUI) which provides energy consumption per square foot. This allows for a better means to measure energy consumption despite the increase in square footage. In 2016, Lincoln Plaza's EUI was reduced by 32% as compared to 2003.

CalPERS will continue to make significant efforts to reduce the impact of the organization's operations on the environment. For more information on Lincoln Plaza's Green Building Accomplishments visit the website.
