[greenyes] Fwd: Request for Examples of Green Purchasing in Federal buildings
Apologies for cross-postings

Date: Fri, 17 Oct 2003 12:41:22 -0400
From: "epp" <epp@no.address>

EPA's Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Program, in cooperation
with the Federal Facilities Enforcement Office, the EO 13148 Workgroup,
the Performance Track Program, and the Design for the Environment
Program, is developing a tool to assist federal facilities in
incorporating green purchasing into the development and implementation
of their environmental management system (EMS). As you are most likely
aware, many federal facilities are currently either developing or
implementing their EMS, in anticipation of the December 2005 deadline
set by Executive Order 13148. We view these activities as an excellent
opportunity to assist in EMS development by providing information on how green purchasing programs relate to the various elements of the EMS framework. We expect this effort will result in:

- Greater interest by federal facilities in including green purchasing
in their EMS.
- EMS-based management tools that can help federal facilities maximize
the benefits of their green purchasing program.
- Case studies that show how some leading federal facilities are
incorporating green purchasing into their EMS.

The last item is where we would like your help. If you have any
examples you feel might contribute to this module, please send them to
Tom Wallace at wallacet@no.address Please pass this request on to list
serves, agencies, bureaus, services, and/or field offices that might be
able to provide some input. Those needing more information can feel free to contact me or the SAIC contractors listed below working with us on this project. Thank you for your assistance.
