Argonne Sustainability Plan

Argonne National Laboratory is developing strategies and taking actions to meet or exceed all Executive Order (EO) goals. In EO 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, President Obama called on Federal agencies to set a shining example of sustainability for the rest of the nation by improving environmental, energy, and economic performance, and to achieve targeted reductions in our greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. The highest risk/opportunity areas are affordable onsite renewable energy, energy intensity, and growth of high-energy mission-specific facilities.
