Office of Federal Sustainability
Established in 1993, the Office of Federal Sustainability (OFS) is housed within CEQ to implement Administration priorities. OFS coordinates policy to promote energy and environmental sustainability across Federal Government operations, which encompass 330,000 buildings, 660,000 vehicles, and $470 billion annually in purchased goods and services, including more than $21 billion for energy.
OFS works closely with agencies and other White House components on policies and initiatives that improve energy efficiency, promote deployment of efficient technologies, and modernize Federal facilities and operations through sound use of taxpayer dollars. OFS also liaises with industry and external stakeholders and encourages public-private partnerships that advance Federal sustainability and energy efficiency, including the use of performance contracting to modernize facilities at no upfront cost to the government.
OFS leads implementation of comprehensive energy, water, building, and vehicle fleet management goals under Executive Order 13693: Planning for Federal Sustainability for the Next Decade, and supports achievement of requirements of the National Energy Conservation Policy Act of 1979, the Energy Policy Act of 1992, the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
