John Howard -- Environmental Protection Agency
Federal Environmental Executive

On April 30, 2002, President George W. Bush appointed John Howard as the Federal Environmental Executive. He and his office are working to promote sustainable environmental stewardship throughout the federal government. To meet this challenge, they are focusing on six priority action areas: the federal government’s use of such strategic tools as environmental management systems; improving waste prevention and recycling, strengthening procurement of the broad range of environmentally responsible and energy efficient services and products, including biobased products; improving the stewardship of our electronic products in their design, use, and disposition; encouraging the design, construction and operation of sustainable buildings; and identifying opportunities for industrial ecology. Previously, Mr. Howard was the Senior Associate Director for the White House Council on Environmental Quality; the Environment and Natural Resources Policy Director for then-Governor Bush; and an environmental attorney in Washington, D.C., and Austin, Texas. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Baylor University and received his law degree from the University of Texas, where he was the administrative editor of the Texas Law Review.
