  • Ensure a balanced approach to integrating climate change considerations into our programs and initiatives

  • Each National Forest and Grassland will measure its progress over the next five years (FY 2010 – FY 2015) by:

    • Answering “yes” or “no” to the 10 questions on an annual basis

    • Providing a narrative describing: accomplishments, plans for next year, barriers to completion/improvement, and plans to overcome barriers.

  • Scorecard responses will help the USFS:

    • Identify our current strengths

    • Identify areas for greater investment

    • Inform the Department, Congress, and the public about our progress in responding to climate change

Getting to “YES”

Option #1: Unit should demonstrate in the Scorecard narrative that it has made progress towards the defined Sustainable Operations requirements by answering the following questions:

  • What actions has your Unit taken to make progress towards the sustainable operations targets listed in the definitions for this element?

  • What reductions in resource use were achieved as a result of these actions?

  • What support does your Unit provide for Green Teams, sustainable operations training, recognition programs, and other activities that foster a culture of sustainable consumption?

Option #2: Unit may choose to complete the Sustainable Operations Checklist (Appendix G) annually.

  • Each year, you must review action items (n = 66) and evaluate progress to date by filling out the Checklist.

  • Answer “Yes” or “No” to each question in the Checklist, and total your “Yes” answers.

  • By FY 2015, you must have completed 75% of all applicable items on the list.
