Strategic Sustainability Peformance Plans
VA recognizes that, when conducting its core mission to care for our Nation’s Veterans and their families, we have a responsibility to minimize environmental impacts. VA is committed to implementing sustainable programs that ensure our operations and actions are carried out in an environmentally, economically and fiscally sound manner.
Developed in accordance with Section 14 of Executive Order 13693, “Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade,” the Department of Veterans Affairs Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP) identifies sustainability goals and defines the agency’s strategy for achieving these goals. Additionally, the SSPP provides a means to review and evaluate the Department’s performance and progress towards these goals.
Per EO 13693, and continuing through fiscal year 2025, the head of each Principal Agency shall develop, implement, and annually update an integrated Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan to, among other requirements, specific agency strategies to accomplish each of the various E.O. goals and include consideration of the effects of climate change on the agency's operations and programs. Below you will find VA’s current and prior year Strategic Sustainability Performance Plans.
