Purchasing's commitment to social responsibilities.
Purchasing is committed to working collaboratively with College / VP areas to integrate sustainable practices into campus operations by minimizing resource consumption and waste generation; reducing the carbon footprint of University-related travel; establishing innovative procurement practices—“Buying Green”; and recognizing, supporting and measuring initiatives that promote sustainability.
By leveraging the University’s buying power, Purchasing is able to acquire many products with environmentally friendly alternatives. Browse preferred supplier agreements in eStores and look for the “green” icon.
From sourcing to delivery, the offices of Purchasing, Stores and Receiving support good stewardship of the environment by purchasing “green”, promoting use of recycled content products, utilizing bio-diesel fuel in Receiving vehicles and delivering office supplies in reusable plastic bins, as appropriate.
