What We Do
The Sustainable Operations and Climate Change (SOCC) Branch is part of the Park Facility Management Division (PFMD) of the National Park Service (NPS). We work with parks, regions, and servicewide programs to develop comprehensive and high quality programs to assist in implementing sustainable best practices in the following areas:
- Green Parks Plan
- Climate Change Mitigation & Facility Adaptation
- Energy & Water Conservation
- Pollution Prevention & Waste Management
- Sustainable Building Design & Operation
This website provides visitors with opportunities to learn more about programs and initiatives managed by the SOCC and find sustainability and climate change web resources and links to other sustainability programs within and outside the NPS.
