  • Description:
    In leading the initiative for a greener federal government, the Council for Environmental Quality (CEQ) called upon agencies to submit a plan for embracing sustainability and meeting federal sustainability mandates. HHS was one of 52 agencies to submit a Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP). The HHS SSPP outlines goals and milestones for integrating sustainability into Department operations. Several CDC employees serve on Departmental workgroups to set milestones and report on the goals outlined in the SSPP. The document is updated each year to reflect current federal goals and priorities.

    In support of the SSPP, each HHS OPDIV, including CDC, has created a Sustainability Implementation Plan (SIP) that outlines the specific strategies that will be employed to achieve federal sustainability goals. CDC’s SIP allows agency Goal Managers, the individuals responsible for the tracking and implementation of sustainability strategies, to keep an organized record of which projects in their goal area are underway. The plan also lists major accomplishments for the previous year, acknowledging the positive impacts on the Agency from a fiscal and an environmental standpoint.

    Executive Order 13423 requires federal agencies to conduct environmental, transportation and energy-related activities in support of their respective missions in an environmentally, economically and fiscally sound manner. The Quality and Sustainability Office, formerly the Office of Sustainability, coordinates and monitors functions related to executive mandates.
