To begin changing how the U.S. military contributes to the global climate crisis, this House Resolution declares that is it the duty of the Department of Defense (DoD) to monitor, track, and report greenhouse gas emissions from all its operations (link to resolution). The United States military does not publicly and regularly report its overall fuel consumption or greenhouse gas emissions—despite requirements laid out in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2021. DoD is estimated to emit more CO2 than over 120 separate countries.
DoD must set clear annual greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for both domestic and foreign operations, consistent with the 1.5oC global temperature rise target specified by the 2015 Paris Agreement. The U.S. military is the globe's single largest institutional source of greenhouse gas emissions. This resolution calls for DoD to reduce the overall environmental impact of all military activities and missions in accordance with the science-based emission targets set out in the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2022.
