Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP)

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description On October 8, 2003, EPA Region 1 - New England helped to organize three sessions at the Massachusetts' 9th Annual Buy Recycled and EPP Vendor Fair and Conference in Worcester, MA. The first session, "EPP 101," provided an introduction to environmentally preferable purchasing with an emphasis on cost saving opportunities and critical communication approaches. The second session, "Federal Focus on EPP: Purchasing Info and Update," included presentations on EPA's Federal Facilities program, EPP and EMSs, online procurement systems that tabulate purchases of recycled content products, and electronics recycling. The third session, "Best Management Practices: Sustainability in Action," featured success stories highlighted in EPA Region 1-NE's Best Management Catalog for Colleges and Universities. The Vendor Fair featured approximately 100 exhibitors and received over 800 attendees from colleges and universities, hospitals, and state, local and, federal government.
