Background

    GreenGov is a Council on Environmental Quality initiative focused 
on Federal energy and sustainability efforts. Past GreenGov Symposiums 
brought sustainability leaders and newcomers in the Federal, state, and 
local government, academic, non-profit and private sectors together to 
learn from each other, share ideas, and help develop innovative 
solutions to energy and sustainability challenges in Federal 
operations. By design, the GreenGov Symposium helps the Federal 
community save energy, save money, and address sustainability goals and 
targets under Executive Order 13514, ``Federal Leadership in 
Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance.'' Historical 
information on GreenGov is available at http://www.whitehouse.gov//greengov.

    Authority:  42 U.S.C. 4342, 4344.
