Environmental Purchasing
Related Environmental Policies

King County has many other policies and plans that complement environmentally preferable purchasing:

  • Strategic Climate Action Plan (2015)
    There are five goal areas:
    • Transportation and Land Use
    • Buildings and Facilities Energy
    • Green Building
    • Consumption and Materials Management
    • Forests and Agriculture
  • Green Building Ordinance (2013)
    Under the ordinance, all county government construction and major renovation projects — including transfer stations, bus shelters, roads and bridges — will be required to seek a LEED platinum rating. Developers will get incentives to build greener projects
  • Equity and Social Justice
    The Equity & Social Justice ordinance identifies focus areas and supports the development of policies and actions that improve fairness and opportunity in county government organizational practices, including all employment practices such as hiring, training, retention and promotion and business practices such as contracting, procurement and grant writing
