Draft Guidelines for Product Environmental Performance Standards & Ecolabels for Voluntary Use in Federal Procurement
Type of document: Training materials, toolkits
The draft guidelines were developed by EPA, the General Services Administration (GSA), and other federal agencies following several listening sessions with a wide range of stakeholders. The sessions focused on how the federal government can be more sustainable in its purchasing and how federal purchasers can best meet the numerous federal requirements for the procurement of sustainable and environmentally preferable products and services.
