IEc provides clients including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state environmental agencies with research, analysis, and communication support to advance green purchasing.

Sustainable products and services are increasing in demand from consumers and institutional buyers, as well as federal and state governments. From construction products to electronics to landscaping, people want certainty that their purchases are environmentally sound, or at the least, the best choice from an environmental perspective. Moreover, organizations are increasingly operating under increasingly rigorous green procurement mandates.

Despite record interest in sustainable products and services, it can be very difficult to easily identify truly green products, and products that comply with institutional sustainable purchasing mandates.

Our Services
  • Analysis of green product and service voluntary consensus standards, including:
    • Analysis of the environmental benefits and financial feasibility of procurement practices that utilize these standards; and
    • Comparative analysis of green product and service standards.
  • Research on the availability of information required to implement green procurement mandates, and strategic planning for meeting mandates.
  • Performance measurement and program evaluation to support green procurement programs.
  • Database development and web programming support.
