Federal 100: Cate Berard

Name: Cate Berard
Title: Sustainable Electronics Coordinator
Agency: Energy Department

Sustainability steward. Berard's passion for sustainability and IT shows through in her work as co-chair of the Federal Electronics Stewardship Working Group, which helps federal agencies buy, use and properly dispose of environmentally friendly IT products. She drafted the electronics and data center requirements for President Barack Obama's recent executive order on federal sustainability, and she builds consensus on issues such as reducing the government's carbon footprint. Berard "is one of those rare people able to be both a thought leader and a workhorse," said Josh Silverman, director of DOE's Office of Sustainability Support.
