International Journal of Technology, Policy and Management (IJTPM), Vol. 13, No. 4, 2013

Abstract: To reduce Federal agency impact on the environment and increase energy security, US Presidents have issued Executive Orders, which along with other legislation aim to improve Federal environmental and energy performance. In order to demonstrate the relationship between policy development at the executive level and management of policy directives, this paper outlines key provisions of Executive Order 13423 and Executive Order 13514, and assesses the effectiveness of the Executive Orders in achieving energy and greenhouse gas reduction in the Department of Defense. The integration of an Environmental Management System with the new ISO 50001 Energy Management System is also examined through a Navy hospital case study to better understand the relation between creating, implementing and managing energy policy directives. A review of how these two management system standards can provide structure in energy and environmental management is discussed in relation to meeting energy goals in Executive Order 13423 and Executive Order 13514.
