Sustainable Procurement

SPLC Founder logoIn 2008 the City of Portland City Council passed the Sustainable Procurement Policy, which is an effort to spend public funds on goods and services that minimize negative environmental impacts, are fair and socially just, and make economic sense, now and in the long term. The Sustainable Procurement Policy compliments and builds on many other environmental and social programs in the City. The links below provide more information and resources regarding the City's work on integrating sustainability principles into procurement decisions.
