EPA Sustainability Plans

Strategic plans help EPA meet federal sustainability requirements and its own internal goals to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, resource use and other environmental impacts.

EPA’s Sustainability Report and Implementation Plan (SRIP) identifies targets for reducing Agencywide GHG emissions and outlines steps to reduce energy, water, waste and other resource use. It also addresses ways the Agency will incorporate sustainability across its facilities, purchases and operations. Goal areas include:

  • Facility energy efficiency
  • Efficiency measures, investment and performance contracting
  • Renewable energy
  • Water efficiency
  • High performance sustainable buildings
  • Waste management and diversion
  • Transportation/fleet management
  • Sustainable acquisition
  • Electronics stewardship
  • GHG emissions reductions
