We promote green purchasing locally by organizing regular Green Purchasing Roundtable meetings.

Green Purchasing Roundtable

Green purchasing can mean a new way of doing business for many public agencies. So several times a year, Alameda County hosts Green Purchasing Roundtable meetings where cities, school districts, and special districts from Alameda County come together to learn from experts and each other on how to make greener purchases, get buy-in from users, and implement successful green contracts.

The meeting presentations are available here so that Roundtable members and non-members can access them as needed. However, we encourage you to use this information as a starting place for your research, as green technologies may have evolved since these presentations were put together. You can find a lot more specific information on Alameda County's green purchasing efforts throughout this website, particularly in the Bids and Specifications section.
