Green Purchasing v2

The Sustainable Acquisition (SA) program is one aspect of Fermilab’s Pollution Prevention and Waste Minimization program and helps Fermilab to reduce its impact on the environment. SA focuses on the purchase of products that are efficient (in water or energy use), contain sustainable components (either biobased products or alternative fuel use) or contain recycled content. SA is considered for every purchase Fermilab makes.

Fermilab’s stock room supplies common use products for the Fermilab community, including a number of “green” products to help minimize Fermilab’s impact to the environment.

The stock room supplies energy- efficient light bulbs, non-toxic cleaners, remanufactured toner cartridges, 100% recycled paper products and continues to search out “green” alternatives for other stock items.
