Guiding Principles Compliance Certification
What is GPC?
The Guiding Principles Compliance (GPC) verification program is the first third-party assessment program designed specifically for federal agencies to assess compliance with the federal Guiding Principles determined by the Implementing Instructions for Executive Order 13834 Efficient Federal Operations for sustainable buildings. The certification programs and materials are constantly kept up to date with the most recent Executive Order to provide a reliable manual for the compliance process and make federally owned, leased or operated buildings more sustainable. This also applies for international projects, such as buildings on American Air Bases and the respective housing areas.
