Federal Leadership

Aiming to set an example for the American people and abroad, the federal government plans to consume 20 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020. Since 2008, federal agencies have reduced greenhouse gas pollution by more than 15 percent, "the equivalent of permanently taking 1.5 million cars off the road," according to the president's report.
