Green the Federal Supply Chain
Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) has committed to the sustainability of the federal supply chain by increasing the sale of green products and service offerings to five percent of total business volume, and increasing the availability of green products and service offerings by 10 percent, relative to its total inventory by September 30, 2013.
In FY 2012, the sale of green offerings accounted for 6.9 percent of total business volume. This is an increase of 3.7 percent over FY 2011. In addition, GSA’s target for green product availability as a percentage of total inventory is 2.84 percent. In FY 2012, the total green product availability as a percentage of total inventory was 2.23 percent.
In FY 2013, GSA will continue to identify additional sustainable product and service offerings and use focused communications to educate federal agencies about available green products and services and where they can be purchased.
