Policy Summary: The University will maximize its procurement of environmentally preferable products and services.

UC Material Management has integrated sustainability into the RFPs for our large strategic sourcing contracts. Currently we are working on increasing big evaluation criteria, adding end-of-lifecycle requirements, recognizing qualitative aspects of sustainability and mapping our supplier requirements to the LEED™ Certification Process and the AASHE STARS® Certification Program.
