Title: Environmentally Preferable Purchasing at the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Environmental Policy and Assistance (HS-22)


1
Environmentally Preferable Purchasing at the U.S.
Department of Energy Office of
Environmental Policy and Assistance (HS-22)
EPEAT and ENERGY STAR
2
Overview
  • Drivers and cost benefits
  • Best Practices
  • Current state of EPEAT (Electronic Product
    Environmental Assessment Tool) certification
  • What manufacturers are covered?
  • Model contract clauses for ENERGY STAR/EPEAT
    products
  • Reporting and data collection

DOE Policy Purchase designated products
containing environmentally preferable attributes
to the maximum extent practicable when available,
affordable and effective

Drivers Directing LBNL to Purchase Green Products
  • Legislation
  • Resource Conservation Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • Clean Air Act Title VI (CAA)
  • Farm Security and Rural Investment Act (FSRIA)
  • Energy Acts of 1992, 2005, 2007
  • Impact of Executive Orders 13221, 13423
  • Replace EO13101, 13123, 13134, 13148, 13149
  • Specify environmental preferability in
    environmental management systems
  • Add Electronic Stewardship and Sustainable Design


4
Drivers Directing LBNL toPurchase Green Products
  • Memoranda of Understanding
  • - Federal Electronics Challenge
  • - High Performance and Sustainable Buildings
  • Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
  • DOE Acquisition Regulation (DEAR)
  • DOE Orders 450.1A and 430.2B and 413.3A
  • DOE Acquisition Guide (Chapter 23)
  • See http//www.hss.doe.gov/pp/epp/drivers_and_guid
    elines.html for information on regulations
    affecting Green Purchasing

Examples of Potential Cost Savings
  • Paint (latex) 16.00/gal Recycled
    paint (meets commercial paint specs)
    8.25Potential Savings for LBNL (50 of
    24,890) 12,000/yr
  • Toner cartridge (Canon Machines) 67.74
  • Remanufactured toner cartridge 30.67
  • Potential Savings for LBNL (50 of
    261,934) 130,000/yr
  • Paper/ream (truck-load) 3.13
  • Recycled paper 2.55Potential Savings for
    LBNL (20 of 120,000?) 24,000/yr
  • Binders (3 White slant D /w clear
    covers) 11.59
  • Recycled binders 6.28
  • Potential Savings for LBNL (50 of
    8000) 4000/yr

6
Electronics Stewardship Best Practices
  • Have policies to extend useful life
  • Buy laptop with docking station instead of
    desktop and laptop
  • Install a Watt Stopper
  • Specify in purchasing contracts
  • EPEAT if standard available (95 of purchases
    required)
  • Enabling ENERGY STAR features on 100 of
    computers and monitors
  • Take back of equipment and packaging
  • Reporting
  • Ensure all non-usable electronic equipment is
    reused, donated, sold, or recycled (READS)

  • AFFIRMATIVE PROCUREMENT PROGRAM (MAR 2003)
  • (a) In the performance of this contract, the
    Contractor shall comply with the requirements of
    Executive Order 13423 and the U.S. Department of
    Energy (DOE) Affirmative Procurement Program
    Guidance. This guidance includes requirements
    concerning environmentally preferable products
    and services, recycled content products and
    biobased products. This guidance is available on
    the Internet.
  • (c) The Contractor shall prepare and submit
    reports, at the end of the Federal fiscal year,
    on matters related to the acquisition of items
    designated in EPA's Comprehensive Procurement

    recovered/recycled content.
  • (d) If the Contractor subcontracts a significant
    portion of the operation of the Government
    facility which includes the acquisition of items
    designated in EPA's Comprehensive Procurement
    Guidelines, the subcontract shall contain a
