What is the Federal Green Challenge?  The Federal Green Challenge is a national initiative under US EPA's Sustainable Materials Management Program,  challenging EPA and other federal agencies throughout the country to lead by example in reducing the Federal Government's environmental impact.

Federal offices or facilities start their participation by choosing a focus in waste, electronics, or purchasing and then choosing a second focus area from any of the six areas that are part of the Federal Green Challenge. Members commit to a reduction goal of at least 5% per year in their two focus areas.
