Green Procurement Compilation (GPC)
The Green Procurement Compilation (GPC) consolidates and organizes information from several federal green purchasing programs in one place, saving you from researching multiple web sites.

Purchasing managers should create purchasing plans and programs that give preference to items containing recycled content, certified wood, and rapidly renewable materials, as well as items that are energy efficient, non-toxic, durable and locally manufactured, harvested and / or extracted. Further, purchasing managers should prioritize vendors who promote source reduction through reusable or minimal packaging of products.
