Sustainable Purchasing: Greening UNLV Through Informed Procurement Practices

As UNLV increases its leadership in environmental stewardship, the Purchasing and Contracts Department is leading the way in educating our vendors and departments on the need and importance of being green. From office and lab supplies, computer equipment, and catalogue printing (to name only a few), the Purchasing Department can identify products that will meet the department's quality needs while having a less harmful impact on the environment. In many instances, the environmentally preferable option is just as cost effective as the virgin product.
