The federal government purchases over $200 billion in goods and services each year, making them the world’s single largest purchaser! The federal government’s enormous size and buying power can help to stimulate market demand for green products and services as well as greatly reduce environmental impacts by implementing green purchasing across all of its facilities.
The SFTool was built by the General Services Administration (GSA) to help federal employees learn and plan how to build and buy green. It compiles all federal green purchasing requirements in one place to make green products and services easier to identify.
