The Office of Federal Sustainability (OFS) coordinates policy to promote energy and environmental sustainability across Federal Government operations, which encompasses 330,000 buildings, 660,000 vehicles, and $470 billion in purchased goods and services annually, including more than $21 billion for energy. It works closely with agencies and other White House components on policies and initiatives that improve energy efficiency, promote deployment of efficient technologies, and modernize Federal facilities and operations through sound use of taxpayer dollars.

The Office of Federal Sustainability also liaises with industry and external stakeholders and encourages public-private partnerships that advance Federal sustainability and energy efficiency, including the use of performance contracting to modernize facilities at no upfront cost to the government.

OFS is housed within the White House Council on Environmental Quality and stewards the Interagency Steering Committee on Federal Sustainability. It works in collaboration with the White House Office of Management and Budget, which issues annual agency Energy/Sustainability Scorecards, and coordinates with the Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program, which maintains Federal energy performance data.
