EO 13423 (Archive) - revoked by EO 13693 on March 19, 2015, Sec. 16(a)

  


Note: March 19, 2015 - EO 13423 has been revoked with the publication of the new EO, "Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade." As guidance and instructions are issued for the new EO, a new EO 13693 Program Area is being built.

Executive Order (EO) 13423, "Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management," was signed by President Bush on January 24, 2007. EO 13423 instructs Federal agencies to conduct their environmental, transportation, and energy-related activities under the law in support of their respective missions in an environmentally, economically and fiscally sound, integrated, continuously improving, efficient, and sustainable manner. The Order sets goals in the following areas:
  • energy efficiency
  • acquisition
  • renewable energy
  • toxic chemical reduction
  • recycling
  • sustainable buildings
  • electronics stewardship
  • fleets
  • water conservation
E.O. 13423 rescinds several previous EOs, including E.O. 13101, E.O. 13123, E.O. 13134, E.O. 13148, and E.O. 13149.

In addition, the order requires more widespread use of Environmental Management Systems (EMS) as the framework in which to manage and continually improve these sustainable practices. It is supplemented by implementing instructions, issued on March 29, 2007 by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ).

OMB is also integral in the execution of E.O. 13423. The E.O. requires the OMB Director to issue instructions concerning periodic evaluation, budget matter, and acquisition relating to agency implementation of the E.O. OMB issues budget guidance through updates to Circular No. A-11. OMB will also continue to track agencies' progress on EO and EPACT goals through the three management scorecards on environmental stewardship, energy, and transportation.

Regulations, Guidance, and Policy

 

EO 13423
This contains DOE supplemental guidance to the Instructions for Implementing Executive Order 13423 dated January 2008. This document provides clarification and guidance to achieve the water reduction goals of section 2(c) of Executive Order 13423 and the Instructions for Implementing Executive Order 13423, dated March 29, 2007. Beginning in 2008, Federal agencies must reduce water consumption intensity through life-cycle cost-effective measures, relative to the baseline of the agency's water consumption in fiscal year 2007 by 2 percent annually through the end of FY 2015 or 16 percent by the end of FY 2015.
This document, issued January 14, 2008 clarifies that "waste diversion" means source reduction and recycling. Agencies cannot count waste diverted from landfills to waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities.
The Interagency Sustainability Working Group (ISWG), as a subcommittee of the Steering Committee established by Executive Order (E.O.) 13423, initiated development of this guidance, dated 1 December 2008, to assist agencies in meeting the high performance and sustainable buildings goals of E.O. 13423, section 2(f).
The Interagency Sustainability Working Group (ISWG), as a subcommittee of the Steering Committee established by Executive Order (E.O.) 13423, initiated development of this guidance, dated 1 December 2008, to assist agencies in meeting the high performance and sustainable buildings goals of E.O. 13423, section 2(f). This guidance also includes the Comment Resolution Summary detailing responses to comments on the draft version of this document.
This memorandum, dated 7 July 2008, clarifies EPA's position regarding the relationship between EO requirements and proposed Federal Agency SEPs. The document explains those situations where a proposal that is similar in nature to directives of an EO may otherwise be acceptable under the SEP policy regarding acceptance of proposals "that may not have otherwise occurred" without the settlement.
