LSC’s Sustainable Purchasing and Efficient Use Policies

LSC’s approved Sustainable Purchasing (5.15) and Efficient Use of Water, Energy, and Other Resources (5.16) Policies offer suggested best practices for purchasing at the college.  Our commitment to environmental stewardship and fiscal responsibility are the foundation of these policies, and the intent is to prompt thoughtful discussion and decision making based on the US EPA’s definition and suggested utilization of Environmentally Preferable Products.  Beyond purchasing, the policies address unique opportunities to reduce overall resource consumption though product sharing, increased reuse and purchasing durable and fixable goods, and implementing practices that achieve efficient overall energy use goals.

The following presentation (best viewed in full screen mode) offers an overview of the policies and prompting questions to use in making purchasing decisions.
