Achieving a Net-Zero Emissions Federal Building Portfolio: Leading Federal Building Decarbonization Strategies to Save Dollars, Cut Emissions, and Create Healthy and Resilient Communities
In 2021, as part the administrations climate agenda the President charged the Federal Government to lead by example by using its scale and procurement power to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Through Executive Order (E.O.) 14057, Catalyzing Clean Energy Industries and Jobs Through Federal Sustainability, and President's Federal Sustainability Plan, the Federal Government will achieve a net-zero emissions building portfolio from its 300,000 Federal buildings by 2045, including a 50 percent emissions reduction by 2032. To accelerate this transition, the White House Council on Environmental Quality's Office of the Federal Chief Sustainability Officer developed a report highlighting proven and replicable net-zero strategies and best practices undertaken by Federal agencies over the past two years. These leading actions demonstrate how agencies are meeting the President's ambitious Federal sustainability goals while saving taxpayer money, creating good-paying jobs, and making communities healthier and more resilient.
