U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) sustainability performance is evaluated against Executive Order 13834, Efficient Federal Operations, the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007, the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 2005, the seven Office of Management and Budget (OMB) scorecard goal assessment areas, and other relevant executive and congressional directives.
Within the 2018 Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan, USACE is concentrating on several focus areas for fiscal years 2018 and 2019:
- Conduct sustainable building assessments at major subordinate command-identified priority buildings over 10,000 gross square feet (GSF)
- Reduce potable water consumption by completing water line replacement projects and reduce future water losses by installing dedicated water meters at the largest water consuming campgrounds
- Issue a sustainable acquisition tool and conduct training sessions at targeted USACE districts/centers
- Incorporate petroleum efficient vehicles, hybrids and plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) into the fleet where mission allows
