In 2009, President Obama challenged the Federal Government to lead by example by becoming leaner, greener and more proficient. He asked agencies and departments to become more energy efficient, reduce waste and water use, and use its purchasing power as the main energy consumer in the U.S.economy to support more environmentally responsible products and technologies in their operations.
The GreenGov Presidential Awards rejoice extraordinary achievement in the pursuit of President Obama's challenge. Given in six dissimilar categories, the awards honor Federal civilian and military personnel, agency teams, agency projects and facilities, and agency programs that demonstrate President Obama's charge to lead by example on the way to a clean energy economy.
