Key Sustainable Products

PBS has targeted 10 frequently-purchased products - "Key Sustainable Products" or "KSPs" for sustainable purchasing. We measure our green purchasing performance based on compliance with sustainable standards for these products. These standards often use "third party" labels to make it easier for buyers and contractors to identify products that meet Federal requirements. PBS is required to use the KSP standards rather than the ones in the "Federal" section of the Green Procurement Compilation when purchasing these 10 products. The reasoning behind these standards is provided in the KSP Standards Report (see References below).
