Sustainable Products Procurement
Creation of “Fast Tracks” in Cornell’s purchasing website to give users the easiest and quickest path to sustainable choices...
Utilize “Fast Tracks” in Cornell’s e-procurement tool, e-SHOP to facilitate purchasing of recycled paper, remanufactured toner, and EPEAT certified computers.
Goal: Encourage sustainable purchasing decisions.
It’s now easier than ever to find sustainable products when making purchasing decisions for your departments. Functioning similarly to “wish lists” featured on sites like Amazon, e-SHOP’s Fast Tracks offer two ways to easily find items you order frequently. The first option is a pre-defined list of items frequently purchased at Cornell, listed by category – computers, office supplies, lab supplies, paper, and toners. The second option allows you to develop your own personal Fast Tracks list of items you order on a regular basis or just store items you’d like to order. Another benefit of using Fast Tracks is that you can share personal Fast Tracks folders with others.
- Improve Cornell’s STARS rating for paper, and cleaning supplies purchases.
