Reduction of Energy Consumption: Executive Order 09-07 (Arkansas 2009)
State agencies should reduce the amount of energy consumed and the environmental impact of state operations. All agencies are responsible for producing a Strategic Energy Plan (SEP) that includes provisions for collecting and monitoring energy use data. LEED is one of several choices of tools to use in green building. SEPs should also cover preferred-purchasing guidelines, the use of bio-based products when available, green vehicle fleets, the establishment of recycling programs with agencies, energy consumption reduction strategies, etc.
