Join a national teleconference introducing RPN’s new Responsible Purchasing Guide for Paint, on May 16, from 1-2:30pm EST and Green Seal’s new standard for recycled content latex paint. 

The Guide, available on the web, as a pdf document and in print, includes:

  • human health and environmental impacts
  • strategies for a successful paint program
  • cost, quality and supply of greener paint products
  • certifications and standards
  • sample policies and specifications
  • database of certified green paint products

The Guide was reviewed by a diverse team of stakeholders from government health, environmental and purchasing agencies; environmental groups; paint manufacturing companies; and standards organizations. The Guide makes it easy for institutional procurement professionals to identify, select and use paint products with the strongest, verifiable social and environmental attributes, while being practical in terms of cost, quality, and supply.
