Climate Change Reduction through Environmentally-Preferable Purchasing

The West Coast Climate and Materials Management Forum — created by EPA Region 9 — developed a “toolkit” of resources and strategies to help public sector purchasers use procurement power to reduce climate impacts throughout their supply chain. Under Prime contractor Toeroek, Full Circle is providing expertise in the development of tools to identify and prioritize the climate impacts associated with buying goods and services. We are also researching implementation strategies for those targeted products and services. Initial products include fuels and IT equipment.
