ABOUT THE 2011 GREENGOV SYMPOSIUM

The 2011 GreenGov Symposium represents the second time the White House Council on Environmental Quality will bring together leaders from Federal, state, local and tribal governments, nonprofit and academic communities and the private sector to identify opportunities around greening the Federal Government. During the 3-day educational event, participants will share challenges and best practices, and discuss cutting-edge approaches for the future.

President Obama signed Executive Order 13514 on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy and Economic Performance on October 5, 2009. The GreenGov Symposium provides an educational experience for federal and non-federal stakeholders to discuss the performance goals set by President Obama in his Executive Order 13514. The Executive Order commits the Federal Government to leading by example in its operations by requiring Federal agencies to set greenhouse gas 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
