In 2011, the GSA eliminated most green-labels, the 12 remaining include Energy-Star (Products) and Bio-Preferred (Chemicals). GSA is conscientiously researching the best Eco-labeling options for specific product offerings. These green certifications will be applied to specific SIN’s, and the GSA will likely make them mandatory in the future (like 302 49)
Agencies are starting to be mandated to buy green products, so in the future the more green products we can get on schedule the better. 9 out of the 26 GSA Schedules currently have green offerings of some sort.
GSA Advantage now has a section of the website that helps buyers search specifically for “green” products. This can be accessed through the “Environmental Program” link on the GSA Advantage homepage.
There are higher-level analyses being done to figure out which items the government buys that have the most impact on the environment.
