Buy Less, Choose Well, Make it Last

Amherst recognizes the importance of strategic planning in making sustainability a campus priority and implementing changes to achieve sustainability goals. With each purchasing decision, we have an opportunity to choose environmentally and socially preferable products and services and support companies with strong commitments to sustainability. 

What’s Next

  • Drafting and considering adopting green purchasing guidelines for the college.
  • Encouraging more sustainable procurement through the Green Office program.
  • Adding sustainability metrics to our RFPs as we renew our external vendor contracts.
  • Improving our sustainability rating. Currently the college is STARS Silver rated.
