Executive Order 14057 on catalyzing American clean energy industries and jobs through Federal sustainability and accompanying Federal Sustainability Plan

legislation type Executive
Plan
Decree/Order/Ordinance
Passed in 2021
This order aims at reducing emissions across federal operations, investing in American clean energy industries and manufacturing, and creating clean, healthy, and resilient communities. It formulates the five following goals:
  • Achieving climate resilient infrastructure and operations, 
  • Building a climate- and sustainability-focused workforce;
  • Advancing environmental justice and equity;
  • Prioritising the purchase of sustainable products, using the federal annual purchasing power of $650 billion in goods and services; and
  • Accelerating progress through domestic and international partnerships.

The Federal Sustainability Plan broadly seeks to mainstream sustainability within the federal workforce, advance equity and environmental justice, and leverage partnerships to accelerate progress. It also sets a pathway for a transition towards zero GHG emissions of the federal portfolio of 300,000 buildings, and 600,000 cars and trucks, to achieve net-zero emissions from federal procurement and operations by 2050.
