Welcome to the Digital EPP Builder!
Thank you for your interest in Dollars Well-Spent, a 100-city program committed to sustainable spend. ProductBio is partnered with your city’s climate and sustainability initiatives to help procurement leadership use data technologies to harness their spend potential more sustainably in alignment with current regulatory and reporting frameworks.
This Dollars Well-Spent Initiative helps local governments to digitize and translate existing environmentally preferable purchasing (EPP) policies into category-specific sustainable purchasing guidelines and specifications to use across over 1000 product categories, drawing criteria and impact specifications from over 400+ certifying bodies with citations, which represents the largest consolidation of standards in one place to-date.
We invite you to join the first 100 cities as part of this Dollars Well-Spent program and participate in building a network of cities committed to working together and sharing best practices with each other. By taking the intake survey, you will have an opportunity to communicate your goals and initiatives occurring at the city level in order to learn and understand the challenges that accompany sustainable procurement efforts.
The questions are primarily about your role in the city and the city’s overall sustainability programs and/or goals. The last question will ask you to select a few product categories that the city purchases in order to help develop sustainable purchasing criteria for your relevant product categories. Once completed, you will receive an email with your login information and a link to your custom-generated EPP policy which you can download, save, circulate, and most importantly, use right away!
We hope this EPP policy tracking ability will save you time and positively influence your organization’s sustainable purchasing choices.
Our product and data teams want to hear from you if you have any questions and/or feedback!
