GSAs next generation DDS3 facilitates Federal agencies meeting their sustainability goals. Through DDS3 GSA will work with FedEx and UPS to provide federal agencies with regular reports on the carbon footprint of their shipping. Second, in awarding the contracts GSA explicitly considered the carbon footprint of the companies' services by modeling the Social Cost of Carbon associated with each company's expected shipments under the contract. Approximately 90% of federal agencies' carbon footprint lies in the products and services they purchase, and these groundbreaking features of DDS3 pave the way toward managing these emissions (and the associated energy costs included in our contracts) through GSA's innovative partnerships with their vendors.
