Welcome to the SFEB Sustainability Spotlight. The SFEB Sustainability Spotlight is a local initiative through the Seattle Federal Executive Board (SFEB) to showcase how federal agencies in this area are saving taxpayer dollars and the environment with their sustainability efforts. It consists of easy to implement campaigns that protect the environment and save money.

The SFEB Sustainability Spotlight goals are:

• to show how federal sustainablity efforts are saving taxpayer dollars and helping the environment
• to share best practices, knowledge, tools, resources and data among the local federal community in an effort to be efficient and effective on behalf of the taxpayer
• to measure the impacts of our collective actions.

The effort will also demonstrate how Federal Executive Boards can play an integral role in coordinating regionally located Federal entities that are working towards shared Executive Order 13514 goals.

Over the next year, the SFEB and participating agencies will implement behavior change campaigns on specific areas including energy savings, green meeting, transportation and purchasing.
