Background: GreenGov is a CEQ initiative focused on Federal energy and sustainability efforts. Past GreenGov Symposiums brought sustainability leaders and newcomers in the Federal, state, and local government, academic, non-profit and private sectors together to learn from each other, share ideas, and help develop innovative solutions to energy and sustainability challenges in Federal operations. By design, the GreenGov Symposium helps the Federal community save energy, save money, and address sustainability goals and targets under Executive Order 13514: Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance and under Executive Order 13693: Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade. Historical information on GreenGov is available at: http://www.whitehouse.gov//greengov.
