Sustainability and the Small Business

I have recently joined the Sustainability in Procurement Fellows which is led by Nancy Gillis and is helping immensely in expanding my knowledge of the topic to be a resource for small business.  The Executive Order (E.O.) 13514 is pushing Federal buyers to make sustainable acquisitions.  What this means for small business is that some procurements will have requirements and standards as to what the government considers green.  Vendors who are currently calling themselves green may not be viewed that way by government buyers in the near future.
