As the most significant energy, goods, and services consumer in the nation, the federal government needs to hit a home run on operating more sustainably.

Truly, sustainability is a team sport that the world needs to win. So, how can agency leaders across disciplines be part of a winning team for a more sustainable federal government?  What’s the playbook for successful teams to meet the objectives of the Federal Sustainability Plan?
