Buy Green Products
Federal agency customers are required to buy environmentally sustainable products, such as energy efficient products and recycled content products, to the maximum extent practicable. The policy to purchase these products is outlined in Executive Order 13834 and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Subpart 23.1. To determine which types of products have sustainable acquisition requirements, visit GSA's Green Procurement Compilation.
GSA helps customer agencies meet sustainable acquisition requirements by offering federal agencies thousands of “green” products. There are two easy ways to buy green products from GSA:
The GSA Advantage!® Environmental Aisle allows federal agencies to search and purchase thousands of individual green products available through GSA’s Multiple Award Schedules, Best-in-Class contracts, and more.
GSA’s Global Supply™ is a one-stop source for requisition-based ordering, providing comprehensive, environmentally compliant solutions. Agencies who order through GSA Global Supply are assured regulatory compliance, a single bill, and global delivery from a government source.
Visit GSA Advantage!® for a listing of these symbols and their meanings. If there is a question about a particular product and how well it meets sustainable acquisition requirements, customers are advised to contact the Schedule vendor for confirmation prior to placing an order.
