Monitor and Tracking Progress


The Green Parks Plan (GPP) outlines the strategic and collective vision for long-term sustainable operations and establishes ambitious goals to improve sustainability throughout the National Park Service. The GPP goals are supported by outcome-based strategic objectives. The goal areas reflect updated federal and NPS priorities and include:
  • Be Climate Friendly and Climate Ready - Combat the climate crisis by achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions
  • Be Energy Smart and Water Wise - Achieve net-zero water use and net zero energy for facilities and operations
  • Buy Green and Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Achieve net-zero waste and sustainable procurement
  • Green Our Rides - Adopt and support zero-emissions transportation methods
  • Foster a Sustainability Ethic – Engage the NPS workforce, partners, visitors, stakeholders, and communities to support and participate in sustainability, climate resilience, and environmental justice
The NPS monitors and tracks progress against these GPP goals and a GPP dashboard is being released in 2023.
