Purchasing New Products

When buying new products for your office at work or at home, you can get the features and performance you want and still help reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. Look for ENERGY STAR qualified office equipment, such as computers, copiers, printers, lighting, heating and cooling equipment, commercial appliances and more. Another resource to look into is the New American Dream’s Responsible Purchasing Network (RPN) – a network of procurement-related professionals dedicated to socially responsible and environmentally sustainable purchasing. RPN offers detailed purchasing guides and assistance on buying environmentally-friendly paper, office electronics, vehicles, and many other products. Learn how your business can join RPN at www.responsiblepurchasing.org.
