The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (ODASD) Energy, Installations and Environment (EI&E) envisions an optimized approach to ensure mission requirements while also driving sustainable resource management.

“We’re honored to lead the DoD through its transition to a more sustainable future, with an unwavering commitment to advancing mission execution across all operational domains,” said Grant Kim, Senior Vice President and Operations Manager at Leidos. “Leidos takes great pride in leveraging our capabilities to support global missions across government agencies and the commercial energy sector.”
Under the SCSRS contract, Leidos will bring together experts in climate science, mitigation and adaptation to integrate climate resilience into the DoD’s core functions to preserve and enhance mission performance. The company will also provide a pathway to understanding and reducing DoD’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This will include new insights into Scope 3 supply chain emissions across DoD’s operations.
The Leidos team, which includes McKinsey & Co., ICF, and Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), will serve as a strategic partner, collaborator, advisor and implementor to the DoD. The work will focus on Department climate, sustainability and resilience initiatives with science, data, and innovation.
