FAR RIN: 9000-AO33 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2021-016, Minimizing the Risk of Climate Change in Federal Acquisitions 

This rule will allow agencies to: (1) provide a preference for proposed solutions that have lower life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions; and (2) require a Federal contractor to identify and manage climate risks that may impact contract performance. This rule is being issued in accordance with section 5(b)(ii) of the Executive Order 14030 titled "Climate-Related Financial Risk.”  DoD, GSA, and NASA published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking in October of 2021 seeking feedback from the public on ways in which the Government could consider greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks in Federal procurement. The feedback is being considered in the development of the proposed rule.
