The Wolf Administration’s interagency GreenGov Council is inviting the public to learn about efforts to boost green and sustainable practices in state government during a meeting at 1:00 p.m., Friday, January 31, 2020, at the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, 310 Elmerton Avenue in Harrisburg.
Co-chaired by the departments of General Services, Environmental Protection, and Conservation and Natural Resources, the council will give an update on its first-year activities and plans for 2020. The public will be invited to provide feedback on the program and discussion on the next steps for the GreenGov Agency Checklist. State agencies will use the annual survey to evaluate progress and achievements toward using fewer resources, which reduces carbon emissions and saves taxpayer dollars.
The survey consists of the performance categories of: Benchmarking and Evaluation; Buildings and Structures; Transportation; Products and Materials; Culture; Renewable Energy; and Resilience. All state agencies under the governor’s jurisdiction will complete the survey, establishing performance measures and strategies to achieve certification in the GreenGov program.
