CCBER has strong purchasing standards. The department purchases 100% post-consumer recycled content paper, and 90% of their products are purchased electronically, In addition, CCBER prioritizes the Central Stores Green Guide in order to ensure they make environmentally preferable purchases. However, it is important to make sure that the department’s purchasing standards are upheld in the future

• Utilize the CCBER Sustainable Purchasing Policy, which was introduced as a part of the department’s LEED certification process. A policy will institutionalize current standards so that new employees can reference the standards and so that the department ensures that future decisions will be made with the same criteria in mind.
