Agency Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan

Agency Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan under 42 U.S.C. § 6374e(b) says that through their petroleum reduction plan, agencies can employ strategies such as using alternative fuels, acquiring high fuel-economy vehicles (such as hybrid, neighborhood electric, electric, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles) if they are commercially available, substituting cars for light trucks, increasing vehicle load factors, decreasing vehicle miles traveled, and decreasing fleet size.
