The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Program is assisting efforts and documenting federal, state, and local government attempts to implement environmentally preferable purchasing strategies. In an effort to provide federal purchasers and other interested parties with up-to-date information on current environmental purchasing practices, this report highlights some of the initial efforts of a few private sector companies to 'buy green'.
