Buying Green Case Studies

Below are case studies highlighting some of the green purchasing practices taking place within City Bureaus. Each case study discusses the scope of the purchase, benefits, costs, performance, and lessons learned. There are many more examples of green purchasing taking place at the City, and we hope to add more case studies over time.

Questions? Each case study contains specific contact information for that project/purchase. For general inquiries on these case studies or green procurement at the City please contact: Stacey Foreman ph: 503-823-3508.
