Through various initiatives and collaboration with multiple agencies, authorities and public colleges and universities, LBE works to reduce the overall environmental impacts of state government operations, particularly those that contribute to climate change.
The Leading by Example Program works with its public partners across Massachusetts state government to provide leadership, technical assistance, guidance, and grant funding to ensure successful implementation of strategies outlined in Executive Order 484. LBE accomplishes this with a comprehensive set of energy and environmental initiatives.
For municipalities seeking assistance in clean energy and environmental measures, please visit the DOER Green Communities Division.
There are many resources available to those working on LBE efforts, including campus sustainability programs, state agency initiatives, federal resources, and more.
