Harnessing the power of public purchasing to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions
The Climate Friendly Purchasing Toolkit provides clear guidance, tested strategies, and critical resources for governments at all levels to reduce the GHG emissions through their supply chain.
An organization's purchasing can account for 35-55% of its total GHG emissions!
Use this toolkit to lower the greenhouse gas emissions from the purchases of your public institution. The toolkit was developed to help government target their efforts on the most significant GHG emissions in their institution's supply chain, or the production of goods and services.You can learn from the efforts of other organizations to help identify high-leverage categories, or you can conduct your own survey. This toolkit also provides guidance on specific purchasing strategies on how to reduce an organization's carbon footprint.
