Responsible Purchasing Network

RPN Local Resources: State of Colorado


In an effort to encourage collaboration on green procurement issues and connect local purchasers, RPN has decided to create regionally based sections with a geographic focus.

While these resources are targeted for a specific area, you'll find that much of the information and material is intended to be applicable to all organizations regardless of geographic location.

This section focuses on the State of Colorado, its city and county governments, and colleges and universities.
