NERC recently completed its Simplifying Environmentally Preferable Purchasing project, which was funded by the Roy A. Hunt Foundation. The project focused on providing purchasers with the information needed to purchase products that are difficult to buy “green”—copy and multipurpose (20lb) paper, monochrome toner cartridges, and office supplies. As part of the project, NERC developed Model Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Specifications and Purchasing Guidelines for paper, toner cartridges, and office supplies. NERC also created fact sheets on each of the EPP Model documents, and a press release about the newly developed resources. In addition, NERC presented a webinar on the importance of EPP and the EPP model documents. All of the project resources, including the webinar recording can be found on NERC’s website.
If you have any questions regarding the EPP project or resources, contact Mary Ann Remolador, NERC’s Assistant Director.
