Obama orders Smart Energy for federal government

CEQ sign

Among the welcome requirements for federal agencies and buildings.

30% reduction in vehicle fleet petroleum use by 2020
26% improvement in water efficiency by 2020
50% recycling and waste diversion by 2015
95% of all applicable contracts will meet sustainability requirements
Implementation of the 2030 net-zero-energy building requirement

What’s more, the agencies have just 90 days to present their plans for a 2020 greenhouse reduction goal. This will have a huge ripple effect, as contractors and suppliers to the federal government will now need to provide green, cleantech building materials, cars, and more.
