The Office of Federal Sustainability (OFS) coordinates policy to promote energy and environmental sustainability across Federal Government operations, which encompass more than 360,000 buildings, 660,000 vehicles, and $470 billion in purchased goods and services annually.
Established in 1993, OFS is housed within the White House Council on Environmental Quality and stewards the Interagency Steering Committee on Federal Sustainability. The Office works across Federal agencies, departments, and other White House components to ensure effective implementation and achievement of statutory requirements and Administration goals related to Federal energy and environmental performance. It also coordinates implementation of programs and initiatives to improve facility and vehicle fleet efficiency, promote adoption of efficient technologies, and modernize Federal facilities and operations through the sound use of taxpayer dollars.
