2015 Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council award ceremony

Alameda County was recognized with a prestigious award from the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council for implementing a strategic plan for copy paper.

What we buy has an impact on the world around us and our communities. Local governments, like Alameda County, purchase a large number of goods and services that they use to help them provide services to residents. Choosing less-toxic and recycled-content products can go a long way towards protecting our climate, preventing pollution, and preserving natural resources.

Alameda County makes a point of purchasing a wide range of products with environmental specifications—everything from office paper to vending machines to janitorial products. We achieve comparable cost and product performance. In fact, we make it a requirement. In our purchases, we provide opportunities for small, local and emerging businesses. We also have found that sometimes the best purchase is one you don't make. Our Property & Salvage department reuses County furniture, technology, and other items.
