EPA Launches New Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Webpage Highlighting Environmental Performance Standards

A new webpage from the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) program focuses on the development of environmental performance standards. The website also includes information on the importance and benefits of using these types of standards.

The EPP program helps federal government purchasers utilize private sector standards and ecolabels to identify and procure environmentally preferable products and services.

EPP is part of EPA’s Sustainable Marketplace which contains many resources for consumers, federal purchasers, institutional purchasers and manufacturers.
