The Green Procurement Compilation (GPC) is a comprehensive green purchasing resource that helps you identify applicable green purchasing requirements by consolidating and organizing information from Federal environmental programs in one place, saving you from visiting multiple websites.
The GPC lists products for which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Department of Energy-Federal Energy Management Program (DOE-FEMP), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), or other agencies have issued designations or otherwise provided guidance for products with environmental or energy attributes.
FedCenter.gov is the Federal Government&rsqou;s home for comprehensive environmental stewardship and compliance assistance. FedCenter’s Acquisition Program area webpage includes links to environmental and energy programs; regulations, guidance and policy; supporting information and tools; lessons learned; and training, presentations, and briefings to assist you in meeting Federal green purchasing requirements and goals.
A new Sustainable Acquisition Training Resources tool has been added to the FedCenter.gov Acquisition Program area webpage. The tool, an Excel-based spreadsheet, is a compilation of sustainable acquisition training resources created or hosted by Federal agencies that are available to government employees, businesses, and non-governmental organizations.
