Executive Order Promotes Energy Conservation and Sustainable Governance

Tom Wolf, governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, gave an executive order on January 8 to reestablish the Governor’s Green Government Council (GreenGov Council) pertaining to leadership in addressing climate change and promoting energy conservation and sustainable governance.

To achieve its goals, the GreenGov Council will encourage the incorporation of environmentally sustainable practices into the government policy, planning, operations, procurement and regulatory functions, and strive for continuous improvement in efficiency and performance.

The GreenGov Council’s climate goal is for the Commonwealth to strive to achieve a 26 percent reduction of net greenhouse gas emissions statewide by 2025 from 2005 levels, and an 80 percent reduction of net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 from 2005 levels.
