Overview: On October 5, 2009, President Obama issued an Executive Order (EO) mandating that each federal agency "develop, implement, and annually update" an integrated plan to address greenhouse gas (GHG) management, renewable energy use, water efficiency, pollution prevention, regional and local transportation planning, sustainable facility development, and electronics stewardship. The impact of the new Executive Order promises to be huge by leveraging the buying power of the government and greening Federal buildings and vehicles. Under the EO, relevant agencies are directed to: • participate in regional transportation planning to increase the effectiveness of environmental and energy management; • design, construct, operate, and manage sustainable federal buildings; • ensure that 95 percent of new contracts for products and services are energy-efficient, water efficient, bio-based, environmentally preferable, non-ozone depleting, made from recycled content, or are nontoxic or a less toxic alternative. Why Now? The EO sets some ambitious deadlines that will affect all Federal Agencies and government contractors. Once fully implemented, the EO will fundamentally change the way the federal government does business, creating both challenges and opportunities for government contractors and vendors across all federal agencies.
