GSA’s IWAC Team Hosts Sustainability Roundtable Discussion With Industry Partners

Recently, the Integrated Workplace Acquisition Center (IWAC) hosted a sustainability roundtable discussion where various industry partners shared their best sustainability practices.

The companies that attended offer products and services from the following commodity areas: furniture, furnishings, technologies and electronics, and sports and recreation.  They discussed their success in various categories:

 

  • Waste Prevention

    • Reductions of wastes through changes in design, manufacturing, use of materials, amount of toxicity

  • Recycling

    • Activities that help recover materials from the waste stream through outreach, collection, separation, re-use

  • Affirmative Procurement

    • Effective and innovative programs for the purchase and use of recovered materials

  • Environmental Preferability

    • Use or products/services which reduce adverse impacts on human health and the environment, process improvements and testing that result in environmental benefits

  • Model Facility

    • Environmental stewardship through leadership, investment in resources, change in culture

GSA works hand-in-hand with industry partners to reduce the environmental impact of the federal government, eliminate their carbon footprint and provide federal agencies with the most sustainable products and services available.
