Sustainable Purchasing Program

Ulster County Sustainable Purchasing Program and Policy

In 2023, the County updated its Sustainable Purchasing Policy. The updated policy can be viewed here. With the policy updates, Ulster County became a participating NYS Green Purchasing Communities Program municipal member.  Green or sustainable purchasing means making informed choices to purchase products that have a lower environmental impact. This initiative is in alignment with County Executive Jen Metzger’s Executive Order 1 of 2023 which created a bold climate agenda for Ulster County Government, and it is being implemented via a close collaboration between the County’s Departments of the Environment and Purchasing.
