Environmental Performance & Sustainability

As the U.S. Department of State represents the nation’s political, economic and cultural interests abroad, it also works to ensure that it continues to project the nation’s values of environmental and sustainable performance in its mission and operations. The Department achieves this with its partners by developing and implementing strategic agency–wide policies and programs; enhancing resource and operational security; deploying and promoting related U.S. technology solutions and commercial interests; and coordinating efforts between management and policy priorities.
