David Johnson to attend GreenGov Supply Chain Summit in Chicago

Next Tuesday, David Johnson will attend the GreenGov Supply Chain Summit, hosted by the White House Council on Environmental Quality and the GSA in Chicago.

The GreenGov Supply Chain Summit will convene Administration officials, executives from leading corporations and small businesses, and leaders from the nonprofit and state and local government communities to discuss how we can work together to green the Federal supply chain, foster American innovation and entrepreneurship, and help build a clean energy economy.

Last year, President Obama signed Executive Order 13514 on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance. Among other goals, the Executive Order called on GSA to lead the development of recommendations for greening the Federal supply chain and reducing greenhouse gas pollution. This Summit will focus on those recommendations, broaden the conversation with the private sector, and address how we can move forward together to achieve these goals.

At the Summit, Nancy Sutley, Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality and Martha Johnson, Administrator of the U.S. General Services will be speaking; and GSA will be making an important announcement.
