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 and Energy Scorecard, the agency did demonstrate significant improvement between fiscal years 2011 and 2012, going from seven red metrics to three green (greenhouse gas [GHG] scope 3 emissions, renewable energy, and potable water intensity), one yellow (GHG scope 1&2 emissions) and three red (energy intensity, non-tactical vehicle petroleum consumption, and sustainable buildings).  In fiscal year 2012, USACE significantly improved over the previous year largely due to a comprehensive data clean-up and analysis resulting in several baseline revisions.
