- Executive Order 13514. On October 8th, 2009, the President signed Executive Order 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance. The Order expands on the energy reduction and environmental performance requirements for Federal agencies identified in EO 13423. The goal of EO 13514 is "to establish an integrated strategy towards sustainability in the Federal Government and to make reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) a priority for Federal agencies." Federal agencies are required to meet a series of deadlines critical to achieving the GHG reduction goals.
- Executive Order 13423. On January 24th, 2007, the President signed Executive Order 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management. The order sets goals in the areas of energy efficiency, acquisition, renewable energy, toxics reductions, recycling, renewable energy, sustainable buildings, electronics stewardship, fleets, and water conservation. In addition the order requires more widespread use of Environmental Management Systems as the framework in which to manage and continually improve these sustainable practices.
- Executive Order 13101, Greening the Government through Waste Prevention, Recycling, and Federal Acquisition, challenges Federal agencies to use environmentally preferable products and services, including recycled content and biobased products.
- Executive Order 13123, Greening the Government through Efficient Energy Management, promotes energy efficiency, water conservation, and the use of renewable energy products within the Federal Government.
- Executive Order 13148, Greening the Government through Leadership in Environmental Management, promotes the use of environmental management systems and pollution prevention as a means to achieve and maintain environmental compliance.
- Executive Order 13149, Greening the Government through Federal Fleet and Transportation Efficiency, challenges Federal agencies to use environmentally preferable or biobased motor vehicle products, and to reduce petroleum consumption through improvements in fuel efficiency and the use of alternative fuel vehicles.

|Other P2 Web Sites
ChemAliance provides up-to-date information concerning the environmental regulations affecting the chemical industry. The site contains a variety of useful resources, including a virtual plant tour. Each stop of the virtual tour contains regulations, P2 options, and case studies for that operations' area.
- Chemical Strategies Partnership
The Chemical Strategies Partnership (CSP) is a non-profit organization working to reduce chemical use, waste, risks, and cost through the transformation of the chemical supply chain. CSP promotes the use of Chemical Management Services model to change the traditional relationship between chemical suppliers and their customers from providing product, to providing service.
- Defense Environmental Network and Information Exchange (DENIX)
DENIX is the central platform and information clearinghouse for environment, safety and occupational health news, information, policy, and guidance for the Department of Defense (DoD). DENIX offers a vast document library and a gateway to Web-based environmental compliance tools.
- Department of Agriculture-Biobased Products
USDA Biobased Prodcuts and Bioenergy Coordination Council (BBCC) was established by the Secreatry of Agriculture to provide a forum through which USDA agencies will coordinate, facilitate and promote research, development, transfer of technology, commercialization, and marketing of biobased products and Bioenergy using renewable domestic agricultural and forestry materials.
- EPA National Partnership for Environmental Priorities. The National Partnership for Environmental Priorities Program (NPEP) encourages public and private organizations to form voluntary partnerships with EPA that reduce the use or release of any of 31 Priority Chemicals (PCs). Federal facilities are especially encouraged to achieve reductions in the following five priority chemicals: cadmium, lead, mercury, naphthalene, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). NPEP recognizes programs that participate and that achieve their reduction goals.
- FedCenter.gov is the Federal Government's home for comprehensive environmental stewardship and compliance assistance information. Its Pollution Prevention Program Area contains guidance, tools, examples, and analyses of products and processes which can be substituted for existing products/processes or added to existing processes to reduce/eliminate pollution.
- Green Alternatives Wizard
MIT students and faculty collaborated on this award-winning project, which provides substitution alternatives for a variety of toxic and hazardous chemicals.
- EMS / ISO 14000
- National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR) P2 Experts Database
- National Recycling Coalition is dedicated to the advancement and improvement of recycling, and also source reduction, composting and reuse by providing technical information, education, training, outreach and advocacy services to its members in order to conserve resources and benefit the environment.
- Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange (P2Rx)
The Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange (P2Rx?) is a consortium of eight regional pollution prevention information centers, funded in part through grants from EPA. These centers all provide pollution prevention information, networking opportunities and other services to States, local governments and technical assistance providers in their region. The centers represent a broad constituency, including state and local pollution prevention programs, manufacturing extension partnerships, cooperative extension and nonprofit organizations. The diversity of audience contributes to an overall breadth of P2 information and opportunities.
