Green Purchasing

Emerson’s Facilities Management staff uses Green Seal-certified cleaning products for campus-wide housekeeping. Green Seal is a nonprofit organization that promotes the manufacture, purchase, and use of environmentally responsible products and services.

Emerson purchases Energy Star-rated computers and other appliances as applicable, and the paper that is purchased is composed of post-consumer recycled material.

The College magazine (Expression) and most College promotional material is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Publications bearing the FSC seal are produced and printed according to the highest social and environmental standards available. The College’s Creative Services Office sources much of its printing work to local vendors.
