Sustainability/Energy Scorecard

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is striving to meet the sustainability targets for the federal government as described in Executive Order (EO) 13514: Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy and Economic Performance.

Although USACE is not presently meeting all its targets as indicated on its Sustainability/Energy Scorecard, the agency is poised to make some positive strides in several areas. The agency is considering an initiative to expand the usage of alternative fuels, such as biofuels, in its vehicles and vessels; and is in the final stages of issuing a new sustainable buildings policy for the agency's Civil Works and USACE–owned and leased buildings, which essentially adopts the Department of Defense Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 1-200-02, High Performance and Sustainable Buildings (HPSB) Requirements.
