WASHINGTON, D.C. , USA, February 17, 2017 / -- Dr. Teresa Pohlman, Director, Sustainability & Environmental Programs, Department of Homeland Security (DHS); Professorial Lecturer, GW Environmental and Energy Management Institute will provide strategic insights gained during a profession including awards from the White House, Pentagon, professional associations and various branches of the military and government in the areas of sustainability science and management during the Vendor Solutions Panel at Energy and Sustainable Solutions Extravaganza on February 24. DHS oversees buildings for its law enforcement campuses and Border Patrol and Customs facilities (many of which are LEED Silver Certified). Dr. Pohlman will provide her insights on issues related to Tomorrow’s Campuses on national security, resiliency, and sustainability issues pertaining to facilities to help us kick off our Town Hall discussion.

Dr. Pohlman has over 30 years of extensive leadership experience managing all aspects of public and private sector environmental and infrastructure program and product development, including planning, budgeting, test and evaluation, operations, maintenance, and construction. Her background includes management positions with responsibility for $300 million to over $1 billion annual budgets for environmental, infrastructure, and facility maintenance programs.

As the Tenant Activities Group Leader at the Pentagon Renovation Office (PRO), in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Dr. Pohlman was responsible for the strategic master planning for the entire Pentagon Renovation, other facilities on the Pentagon Reservation, and the geographically dispersed sites for Continuity of Operations. She ensured that the construction design and requirements for these projects were consistent across the Department of Defense, among the Navy, Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, and other Defense agencies. These requirements integrated operations and maintenance considerations during construction, via the Design Process, where multiple stakeholders participated to ensure renovation and construction are accomplished without sacrificing mission continuity. She led a significant endeavor to ensure the Pentagon Renovation Program was on the “cutting edge” of sustainable design and constructability.

At Headquarters Air Force, she was the Environmental Division Chief in the Office of the Civil Engineer, and managed the Air Force’s $1 Billion environmental program, including cleanup, compliance, conservation, and pollution prevention, for all bases in the United States and overseas, including international bilateral agreements with Russia, Norway, Argentina, and Italy.
