GLRPPR Sector Resource: NASPO Green Purchasing Guide

Title:
NASPO Green Purchasing Guide

Abstract:
For those new to EPP, implementing a green purchasing program is not always simple. Such efforts may be challenged by administrative hurdles, technical barriers, and skepticism from purchasers and product end-users. As a result, NASPO has developed this Green Purchasing Guide for its members and others to use in navigating the sea of information surrounding the adoption of a green purchasing program.

This guide is intended to be a straightforward, easy-to-use document that provides purchasers with:

  • A basic understanding of the concept and benefits of green purchasing;
  • Recommended steps and proven strategies to enable the implementation of a green purchasing program; and
  • Links to other resources offering detailed information on specific elements of the process.
