President Biden's Executive Order 14057 on catalyzing American clean energy industries and jobs through Federal sustainability and accompanying Federal Sustainability Plan (collectively referred to as "The Federal Sustainability Plan") outlines an ambitious path to leverage domestic and international partnerships to accelerate progress and catalyze greater action at home and abroad. We will place senior leaders from the private and non-profit sectors into limited-term appointments to bring innovative perspectives and expertise to assist Federal agencies with sustainability and climate preparedness efforts. We have also launched the Greening Government Initiative, a first-of-its kind forum for engaging governments around the world in greening government operations.
In coordination with the Council on Environmental Quality, the Office of Personnel Management will support agencies in placing senior leaders from the private and non-profit sectors into limited-term appointments to bring innovative perspectives and expertise to Federal agencies and support efforts related to climate action and sustainability.
In April 2021, the Biden-Harris Administration announced the United States will co-lead a new initiative—the Greening Government Initiative—to promote international exchange and cooperation to advance greening government operations around the world.
The Federal Government will partner with State, Tribal, and local green governments to enable information and best practice sharing to accelerate sustainability initiatives at every level of government.
