What is an environmentally preferable product?


Today’s post is by Ronald D. Southard, CEO at SafeSourcing Inc.

With everything else companies must focus on these days, how can you ensure that you are still buying products and services that support the environment. And just what is an environmentally preferable product.

An Environmentally Preferable Product is a product or service that has a lesser or reduced impact on human health and the environment relative to competing products or services that serve the same purpose. Such products or services may include, but are not limited to those which contain recycled content, minimize waste, conserve energy or water, or reduce the amount of toxins either disposed of or consumed.

As you might imagine part of the reason we chose the name SafeSourcing was in order to insure not only that the products and services you source were safe for you, your associates and your customers, but also to insure that they have minimal impact on the resources of the planet we all share. Our SafeSourceIt™ Supplier Database includes over 25 certifications that we hold our suppliers accountable to during the vetting process and that support your socially responsible initiatives by holding your supply chain accountable to the same strategies.
