Sustainable Green Purchasing/Procurement Policy

The Town of Bladensburg developed and adopted a Green Purchasing Policy in April of 2011 (4-2011) and updated the policy in April 2016, adopting Green Purchasing Policy (4-2016) as a result of our ongoing commitment to minimize impacts on human health and the natural environment. It was and is our intent to reduce the negative effect on humans and the environment, when economically feasible, by actively pursuing environmentally preferred products i.e. raw material, manufacturing, packaging, use, reuse, operation, maintenance and disposal products. Our Green Purchasing Manager, Director of Public Works/Code Enforcement Director coordinates with federal, state and local agencies as well as other stakeholders regarding, permits, retrofit design, environmentally preferable purchasing, sustainability, bio retention, and other environmental construction and installation issues to ensure compliance with this policy.
