It is shown that the curvature of space-time induced by vacuum fluctuations of quantum fields should be proportional to the square of Newton's constant $G$. This offers a possible explanation for the success of the approximation $G m^6 c^2 h^{-4}$ for the dark energy density, with $m$ being a typical mass of elementary particles.
