On October 5, 2009, President Obama issued Executive Order (EO) 13514, "Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy and Economic Performance", which establishes numerous "green" requirements for the Federal Government.
E.O. 13514 requires federal agencies to establish greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets; increase energy efficiency; reduce fleet petroleum consumption; conserve water; reduce waste; support sustainable communities; and leverage Federal purchasing power to promote environmentally-responsible products and technologies.
In order to meet the requirements of E.O. 13514, and to demonstrate commitment to meeting President Obama's sustainability targets and goals, HUD has established a Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan. The HUD Sustainability Plan has been released to the public and is available online.
