Company Description

EPPs are competitively priced, high performance products and services that can be obtained from over three dozen statewide contracts. They can render significant savings while reducing the state's impact on the environment and public health.

By 2003, thanks to the efforts of Executive Office of Environmental Affairs' State Sustainability Program and other sustainability and climate change organizations across the state, the range of environmental activities implemented by Commonwealth agencies, cities and towns extended beyond purchases of recycled content and other EPPs. The new initiatives included as green house gas emission reduction, waste minimization, water and energy conservation and other sustainable practices.

Learn About EPPs and the EPP Purchasing Program

Environmentally preferable products (EPPs) have become the first choice for many purchasers in recent years because they have developed into high performance, competitively priced products and services with the added value of protecting the environment and public health.

Visit the EPP Vendor Fair and Conference

2009's Vendor Fair will be held on October 27, 8:00am - 4:00pm, at the DCU Center, Worcester, MA. The EPP Program's signature event brings together over 1,300 federal, state and local procurement officials, fleet and facility managers, and environmental staff. The show also features 160 exhibitors of EPPs, a slate of 10 workshops, breakfast and lunch and a day of fun activities and networking. The EPP Vendor Fair is free to all public sector personnel.

The Massachusetts Environmental Purchasing and Sustainability Awards are presented annually to recognize outstanding efforts in purchasing EPPs and implementing other sustainable practices among Commonwealth public sector entities and businesses.

The first Buy Recycled Awards were presented in 1996 at the Second Annual Buy Recycled Vendor Fair and Conference.
