Is green procurement—the purchase of products and services that have a lesser effect on the environment—just another in a long series of federal mandates, seemingly aimed at making your job more difficult? Or is it perhaps the solution to a variety of woes plaguing federal facilities? An aggressively managed green procurement program can reduce waste and pollutants, improve water quality, save resources, and increase worker productivity and health. In short, green procurement should be the heart of sustainability, affecting all aspects of the program, and reaching far beyond the facility boundaries. © 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
