About the Office of Federal Sustainability

The Office of Federal Sustainability is responsible for promoting sustainability and environmental stewardship throughout Federal government operations. Created by Executive Order in 1993, the Office is housed at the President's Council on Environmental Quality, is administered by EPA, and stewards the interagency Steering Committee on Federal Sustainability.

Working in collaboration with the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Federal Sustainability supports agency sustainability efforts with expertise, detailed guidance, case studies, and tools. Its specific focus is the successful implementation of Executive Orders on Federal environmental performance, including achieving Federal goals for greenhouse gas emissions reduction, energy efficiency, and water conservation; and documenting the economic benefits of environmental performance.
