Environmentally Preferable Purchasing

Organization(s) New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) P2RTK continues to be involved in ongoing efforts to foster greater acceptance and use of environmentally preferable purchasing (EPP) concepts. In 2007, P2RTK worked with the New Jersey Departments of Treasury and Health to develop standards that were incorporated into a contract for green cleaning products for State agencies. P2RTK is currently working with the NJDEP's Office of Information Resource Management (OIRM) to develop guidelines for EPP information technology purchases.

In January 2008, legislation was enacted that requires the Treasury Department, in consultation with the NJDEP and other appropriate State agencies, to develop and periodically revise a list of sources for EPP. P2RTK is currently reviewing all State contracts to identify those with EPP components to be put on a Treasury Department website dedicated solely to State contracts with EPP requirements. P2RTK will also be identifying products and/or contracts for review, where they think they can incorporate new or additional EPP components.
