Industry Best Practices
Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP)

EPP is growing across industries, but because of the vast quantity of supplies necessary to provide service, opportunities abound in healthcare. EPP is the practice of purchasing products/supplies whose environmental impacts have been found to be less damaging to the environment and human health when compared to competing products/supplies. Many EPP options are available at similar or lower price as the alternative. NYSP2I developed an Excel-based EPP framework to help purchasers compare products.
