The Green Purchasing Task Force is comprised of volunteer students, faculty, and staff committed to working with senior administration to facilitate dialog and implement environmentally responsible solutions across the Cornell community. Recognizing that more environmentally friendly purchasing will require not only institutional changes but also cultural changes in consumption, the GPTF hopes to be a part of education and outreach to help create a campus culture of environmental sustainability at the individual level.

Mission Statement
The Green Purchasing Task Force serves the Cornell University community by educating, advising, and engaging students, faculty and staff in the application of ecological principles to achieve Green Purchasing solutions.

Recent Activities Include

  • Ongoing selection of environmentally preferrable suppliers, in order to provide the campus community with green purchasing options
