As companies continue to produce more environmentally friendly products, purchasing officials need to have the proper skills to evaluate products based on costs and effectiveness. Anne Jackson, the Department of General Services Sustainability Officer offered a training session on buying green products during MACo’s Summer Conference titled “Counties Going Green – a Guide to Sustainable Purchasing.”

Moderated by Delegate Steve Arentz, this session offered best practices for sustainability and advice to assist with the selection of products that offer the best value in terms of cost, performance, and the environment.  The session also discussed the benefits of green purchasing and provided tips for establishing a program.

For more information on green purchasing visit the Department of General Services website or the National Association of Counties (NACo) website.
