OFEE Promotes Use of ISO 14000 Series in US Government

Edwin Piñero writes that the first non-DoD facility obtained an ISO 14001 registration certificate in October 2002 as a result of efforts within the Federal Government that are expected to lead to more EMS registrations and achievement of a broad program of environmental management initiatives. Piñero examines how the OFEE has expanded its role from Federal recycling and "green procurement" to helping Federal agencies meet a broader range of issues regarding sustainability and enhanced environmental management. He provides an inside perspective of OFEE and its goals, responsibilities and accomplishments and a sense of what will be happening in the US government in the next few years, particularly its use of the ISO 14000 series.
