Ecolabels and beyond in procurement

Posted 6 June 2011 by Anastasia O'Rourke to Ecolabel News.

Anastasia O’Rourke from Ecolabel Index will be joined by Scot Case of UL Environment and Alicia Culver from the Responsible Purchasing Network in a webinar hosted by the US EPA on June 16 at 1-2:30pm EST. The webinar is part of the US EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management Web Academy series.

Together we will be covering:

  • what North American professional purchasers are currently up to in green purchasing;
  • how ecolabels get used and screened for being credible; and
  • what other tools and methodologies are starting to get used in purchasing, such as LCA’s, Environmental Product Declarations and so on.

Should be a lively discussion, and we are thrilled to be invited to it.

The webinar is free and open to the public, you can register here.
