Sustainable Purchasing

Our Perspective


As good stewards of resources, it is important to consider the environmental and health effects of products, from raw material extraction all the way through the ed of the product life. When negotiating services, we need to be conscious of the methods of performance and the impacts they might have on our community and ecosystem. The City seeks products and services that have a reduced impact on human health and the environment and that more fully support communities and economies. Efforts are guided by city-wide initiatives and policies that, among other goals, are aimed at reducing waste and greenhouse gas emissions while increasing reuse and recycling, maintaining the health of residents, and supporting fair competition.
