Climate Friendly Government Purchasing
Webinar, Tuesday, December 10th, 2013 12:30 pm
Government and higher education institutions are huge purchasers of products and services. Efforts to harness this purchasing power to benefit the environment and save money must go beyond a focus on single attributes like recycled content and toxicity to encompass life-cycle impacts and greenhouse gas reductions.
While the goal of reducing environmental impacts of government purchasing has been around for decades, the tools and approaches are changing quickly. Join us to learn about the exciting work of the West Coast Forum’s Government Purchasing for Climate Protection Workgroup.
Learn about our latest findings on the high carbon-impact categories of government purchasing, and hear about how two state governments have developed strategies to reduce the climate impacts of their purchasing decisions.
