The Interior Department, the U.S. Postal Service and a California Air Force base are among the winners of sustainability awards presented Tuesday by the Biden administration.

The White House announced the winners of its Presidential Federal Sustainability Awards, which recognize federal agencies and employees for their work on sustainability and climate resilience, the White House announced. Award recipients were slated to be honored Tuesday at a White House ceremony.

The award winners “represent the very best of our Federal workforce and agencies who have tackled complex challenges and delivered results for a cleaner, more efficient Federal Government,” White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Brenda Mallory said in a statement.


The winning agencies are advancing the Biden administration’s goals of cutting greenhouse gas emissions from government operations, the White House said.
