The National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) has created a new “Green Knowledge Community” to bring together experts and practitioners to develop, disseminate and promote information and resources for and about policy development, environmentally preferable products, and social and economic responsibility in public procurement.  The new Green Knowledge Community will help purchasers share information, success, best practices, and challenges and provides a forum to share ideas and solutions. 

Participation in the Green Knowledge Communities is free to all NIGP national members.  NIGP Knowledge Communities provide members who share common interests an opportunity to connect and share pertinent information as well as best practices. This professional connection empowers professionals by increasing their effectiveness and ability to support the publics they serve. These member-exclusive programs include dedicated list serves, live webinars, and topical face-to-face conferences covering issues most relevant to the knowledge communities’ needs.
