Greening State Procurement
Discover state departments' progress to buy Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) goods and services. EPP purchases enhance energy, water efficiency and promote natural resource conservation. Departments are encouraged to track purchases to measure progress in meeting waste diversion and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals outlined in Executive Order B-18-12.

This graph represents the state’s progress towards increasing EPP Spend. Departments can look to DGS EPP designated contracts for green commodities, DGS purchasing standards and recognize third-party certifications in their solicitations to achieve a green buy. To access these documents go to the Buying Green Guide.

This graph represents environmentally preferable purchases of goods and services that have been acquired through a noncompliant EPP purchasing method. Departments had an opportunity to procure these same goods and services through an EPP compliant statewide commodity contract that will assist in increasing their goals. Look to the Buying Green Guide to find these goods and services contracts.

Buying Goods made with post-consumer recycle content (PCRC) aid waste diversion. This graph represents the percent of state buys compliant with State Agency Buy Recycle Campaign (SABRC) minimum requirements. DGS offers green disposable food service supplies contracts such as plates, bowls, trays, and containers that can be found on Buying Green Guide under Food.
