In March 2007, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi began the Green the Capitol Initiative to make the U.S. House of Representatives a leader in providing an environmentally responsible and healthy working environment for the House employees and a showcase for sustainability. The Initiative is headed by the Chief Administrative Officer of the United States House of Representatives under the direction of Daniel P. Beard.

All data is based on documents downloaded from Regulations.gov. The first table shows mentions: all documents that include the name of the company anywhere in the document or document metadata. The second table shows submissions: all documents where the submitter metadata included the company name. Each table shows the top 10 dockets, ranked by number of occurrences.
Matches are based on a search for the company name. Variations in the company name, such as acronyms, nicknames or alternate names may cause documents to be missed. The mention of a company name in a document may be incidental and does not necessarily indicate that the company has any relevance to the document. Company names that are common English words may erroneously match with text that is not referring to the company.
