The 在札幌米国総領事館 U.S. Consulate General Sapporo announced on Earth Day their switch to generating 100% of their power from emissions-free renewable energy. Sourced by a local power company’s carbon-free plan, this action will save an estimated 141,000kg of CO2 emissions per year — roughly equivalent to taking 1,500 flights between Sapporo and Tokyo.

Happy Earth Day from #StateOBO!

We were honored to take part in the U.S. Department of State's Greening Diplomacy Initiative - GDI's Earth Day celebration yesterday where OBO Energy Manager, Jennifer Faupel, received GDI's Award for Excellence in Individual Sustainability Leadership for her work in pioneering the Department’s transition to EnergyCAP, a system that automates capturing utility bills.

During the event, OBO's Director, Ambassador Will Moser, participated in a panel discussion to talk about how the Bureau is aligning its efforts in support of the U.S. Department of State's mandate to lead by example in sustainability and climate adaptation. We were also able to display some of the physical examples of the work our architects and engineers are doing to ensure that OBO is at the forefront of eco-diplomacy.

We hope to see everyone again next year!

OBO Managing Director, Angel Dizon, recently spoke with mentors and mentees of the Architectural League of New York's League Mentorship Program about #StateOBO's mission, work, and the different government career paths in architecture and design that await their future. The League Mentorship Program fosters student-mentor connections by matching design professionals with architecture students in the New York/New Jersey area for nine months of one-on-one advising, relationship building, and mutual learning.

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce them to the Bureau and hope they will keep us in mind as they consider future career options!

Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry joined Ambassador John Hennessey-Niland and the US Embassy Koror team in Palau yesterday to visit a new photovoltaic installation that will make the embassy the first Net-Zero Energy U.S. diplomatic facility in the world.

The new solar power system is designed to provide 100% of the campus’s annual energy needs and significantly reduce utility purchase savings during the first year of operation.

#StateOBO in partnership with the U.S. Department of State's Greening Diplomacy Initiative - GDI continues to address the climate crisis through similar projects and we are so thrilled that Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry was able to see firsthand the work we are doing to improve the resiliency and sustainability of diplomatic posts around the world.

#StateOBO is thrilled to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new U.S. Consulate General in Milan, Italy!

Situated on a 10-acre site on the historic grounds of Piazzale Francesco Accursio, the new U.S. Consulate General will be an expression of globally influenced design that seamlessly weaves modern and historic elements into an architecture that represents the close collaboration of the United States and Italy. The project includes the preservation and revival of the iconic Liberty Building and Liberty Plaza which frame the site and serve as a gateway welcoming visitors and staff to the campus.

We look forward to its completion in 2025!
