Greening Government Procurement
Executive Order (EO) 13423 Section 2(d) and EO 13514 Section 2(h) support the agency acquisition of goods and services through the use of sustainable environmental practices, including acquisition of products that are:
- environmentally preferable
EO 13514 further mandates that 95 percent of new contract actions, including task and delivery orders, for products and services with the exception of acquisition of weapon systems, meet the requirement for use of sustainable environmental practices. EO 13514 also includes products which are non-ozone depleting or are non-toxic or less toxic alternatives where such products and services meet agency performance requirements.
