Maryland Green Purchasing

​​"The urgency of the climate crisis is here.  We owe it to ourselves, our state, and our future generations to take bold actions now."
- Wes Moore, Governor of Maryland

The Moore/Miller Administration is committed to meeting the state’s climate goals and making Maryland the greenest state in the country.  Maryland’s statewide green purchasing program leverages the purchasing power of Maryland’s state government to minimize our impact on the environment, public health and the climate. 

The Maryland Green Purchasing Committee (GPC) was established by the Green Maryland Act of 2010, and administers an environmentally preferable purchasing program for the State of Maryland. 

The GPC provides state agencies with the tools and resources to take advantage of solutions that have already been proven as effective, while signaling the commercial sector to continue their commitment to developing new and environmentally beneficial products and services. 

In order to reduce our carbon footprint; protect our natural resources; prevent air, water, and soil pollution; and support public health, the GPC encourages the purchase of products that: 

  • Have environmentally conscious manufacturing processes

  • Reduce the use of raw materials 

  • Do not use hazardous or toxic substances

  • Are biodegradable or recyclable

  • Are energy-efficient

The GPC has set forth specifications for state agencies to follow when procuring products or services - which can be found here​.
