[GreenYes] Proposed San Jose EPP Policy
> The City of San Jose is considering the adoption of an Environmentally
> Preferable Procurement (EPP) Policy.  The new policy would replace the
> Source Reduction and Recycling Procurement Policy of 1990, providing for
> broader consideration of resource and energy conservation benefits,
> toxicity, and manufacturing impacts, rather than focusing almost entirely
> on the purchase of recycled content products.
> The proposed policy will be considered by the City Council's Economic
> Development and Environment Committee at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, September
> 10, 2001, in Room 204 of City Hall.
> We invite your comments on the proposed policy, either in writing or at a
> stakeholder meeting at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, September 7, 2001.  The
> meeting will be held at the offices of the Purchasing Division, 1661
> Senter Road, San Jose, California.  Written comments may be returned to me
> by e-mail, fax, or post.  I must receive any written comments by 5 p.m. on
> September 7 in order to incorporate them into the Committee presentation.
> If your organization has a written procurement policy dealing with any EPP
> issues, we would appreciate a copy by e-mail or fax--my contact
> information is below.  If Council approves the Policy, we will be seeking
> stakeholder participation in the development of procedures and other
> implementation tasks.  Let me know if you are interested.
> The proposed EPP Policy and the meeting notice can be found at
> If you would like a copy of the staff report, please send your request
> directly to me, using the link below.  PLEASE DO NOT USE "REPLY."
