GreenGov Collaborative

On October 19, 2009, the White House launched the GreenGov Challenge to ask all Federal and military personnel to share ideas about how the federal community can lead by example, green the government, and meet the goals of President Obama's Executive Order on Federal Sustainability. The GreenGov Challenge generated more than 5,000 ideas and 165,000 votes from 14,000 federal employees. The top ideas are summarized in the GreenGov Final Report.

The GreenGov Collaborative, an online discussion group hosted by, is your opportunity to work with colleagues across the government to put these ideas into action. This private community offers various discussion forums for you to share your best ideas and strategies, ask questions, and recruit allies in your efforts to create a more sustainable Federal Government.

Membership to the GreenGov Collaborative additionally entitles you membership to: 1) the GreenGov Update, a bi-monthly email newsletter from the Office of the Federal Environmental Executive regarding recent GreenGov initiatives, and 2), the Federal Government's home for comprehensive environmental stewardship and compliance assistance information.
