Blackstone CSO Don Anderson Presents to Federal CSO Quarterly Steering Committee

Each quarter, a meeting is held between Chief Sustainability Officers from 25 federal agencies tasked with planning sustainability initiatives for the next decade. This month, Blackstone CSO Don Anderson was invited to present to the group, sharing his experience in the private sector and how Blackstone helps companies in our portfolio become more efficient and sustainable.

Anderson presented his findings from years of engagement with federally funded programs such as Green Lights, Energy Star, and US Green Building Council LEED and shared insight on what works for environmental performance improvement in the private sector. Anderson also discussed Blackstone’s approach, including scorecards, toolkit-driven preventive maintenance, Blackstone’s “Fast Find and Fix” assessments, and sector playbooks that can be adapted to support the U.S. government’s environmental sustainability efforts.
