Buy Green Products, Services, and Vehicles
On October 5, 2009, President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance. The Order expanded previous energy reduction and environmental performance requirements. The Executive Order requires federal agencies to meet sustainability goals that lead to a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and stipulates that 95 percent of new government purchases comply with environmental requirements.
To help government customers fulfill this mission, GSA makes it easy for you to buy products, services, and vehicles that meet these environmental requirements. Here are some helpful resources on how to buy green products, services and vehicles through GSA:
- Learn more about GSA’s green and sustainable product offerings;
- Find out about purchasing green services through GSA Multiple Award Schedules; and,
- Understand how GSA helps government customers make green choices in vehicle selection.
