California Public Employees Retirement System (CALPERS)

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE'RE DOING

For more than eight decades, The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) has been a steward of retirement and health security for state, school, and public agency members; people who have invested their lifework in public service. CalPERS is the largest defined benefit public pension in the United States and has a total fund market value that currently stands at approximately $380 billion. The pension fund serves more than 1.9 million members in the CalPERS retirement system and administers benefits for more than 1.5 million members and their dependents in the health programs.

CalPERS is committed to helping preserve our state’s natural resources. Even before Governor Brown issued Executive Orders B-16-12 and B-18-12, CalPERS practiced several of the standards outlined in these Orders. As the topic of green buildings continues to evolve, CalPERS embraces best practices and innovative ideas that broadens the approach to sustainable operations. As new sustainable business laws and industry best practices emerge, CalPERS will continue to broaden the approach to sustainable operations. Additionally, we will continue to support and implement sustainable practices that improve efficiency in operating the facilities and align our business practices to sustainable principals and legislative mandates that result in a long-term benefit to the environment.
