Green Purchasing Policy

Procurement Services is committed to caring for our common home, and therefore will continue to promote sustainable purchases whenever possible and economically feasible. In practice, the objective is to purchase products that have low environmental impact because of the way they are made, transported, stored, packed, used and discarded.

The Task Force on the Environment, sponsored by the President’s Office and overseen by the Office of Sustainability, has drafted a Green Purchasing Policy to assist Holy Cross’s objectives towards supporting Campus Sustainability and reaching its specific aim of being Carbon Neutral by the year 2040.
