The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released its second Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP) outlining targets and actions to reduce Departmental greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through energy management and sustainability strategies.
Required by Executive Order (E.O.) 13514, the SSPP is submitted to the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB). It builds on DOE’s progress to date and commits the Department to achieving a 28% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions and a 13% reduction in Scope 3 emissions while improving energy efficiency, water conservation, waste reduction, and sustainable acquisition.
