Make a GREEN Purchasing commitment for 2003

Thanks for your support of JLab's Affirmative Procurement program. With your help we've made progress during FY02 in the Lab's Green Purchasing program. The recently completed DOE Affirmative Procurement report for FY02 indicates we've improved our overall compliance from 82% in FY01 to ~87% in FY02. However, there are two recycled content products, binders and plastic transparencies/document protectors, that we must focus on for FY03. These items are large volume, high cumulative costs, but show low compliance for FY02. Less than 50% of these products purchased met the recycled content standards. Green products for these items are readily available on JLab's e-commerce site. This should be your primary source of all routine office products. For your convenience, to easily identify Green products, separate vendor catalogs for recycled content and environmentally friendly products are available on the e-commerce site. Please select environmentally preferable products when making binder and plastic transparencies/document protectors purchases. Your choice will help JLab meet its Affirmative Procurement goals and also will help improve our environment. (Dennis Dobbins, x5139)
