Government-wide emissions target coming soon, White House official says

“I expect that we will have an announcement soon about a government-wide approach and a government-wide target that is ambitious, that is something that we can be proud of,” he said at a briefing hosted by the consulting firm ICF International.

He said the federal effort would demonstrate “leadership” in saving taxpayer money and undertaking the types of emissions cuts that the White House is seeking in domestic legislation and international agreements.
