John Wilkerson, CPSM, SSMBB shares potential strategic sourcing and supplier development challenges in implementing United States House Bill 2454 American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009.
Here's a brief excerpt:
On October 5th 2009 the newest CPO and Supply Chain challenge became a reality when the Presidential announced the Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy,and Economic Performance, Executive Order 13514. This Federal Executive Order requires government agencies to set 2020 sustainability targets within 90 days. Combined with the U.S. House of Representatives 2454- American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, passed in July 2009, wait and see is over, 2010 is the time to action.
The Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance Executive Order implies a simple and well crafted sustainability strategy that is applicable for corporation, private companies, non-profits as well as federal, state, and local governments.
