Executive Order 14057 on catalyzing American clean energy industries and jobs through Federal sustainability and accompanying Federal Sustainability Plan
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.
Net-zero emissions from overall federal operations by 2050, including a 65 percent emissions reduction by 2030.
A net-zero emissions building portfolio by 2045, including a 50 percent emissions reduction by 2032
Net-zero emissions from federal procurement no later than 2050, including a Buy Clean policy to promote use of construction materials with lower embodied emissions.
100 percent zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) acquisitions by 2035, including 100 percent zero-emission light-duty vehicle acquisitions by 2027;
100 percent carbon pollution-free electricity (CFE) by 2030, at least half of which will be locally supplied clean energy to meet 24/7 demand
