Abstract Why go Green. To comply with Executive Orders and DoD Directives -- Federal Laws, regulations, Presidential Executive Orders, and recent DoD Green Procurement policy call for increased procurement of 'green' products. To promote environmental stewardship -- Congress and the President have directed federal agencies to be good stewards of the environment. Federal agencies are now expected to conserve energy and other precious natural resources, and as stewards of federal dollars, we are obligated to purchase certain items considered 'green.' To reduce operating and maintenance costs -- Reuse or recycling items reduces disposal costs and material handling. To reduce the hazardous waste stream -- Eliminate part of the 2.6 billion pounds of toxic chemicals released annually in the United States. Green products are environmentally preferable products that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared to competing products or services that serve the same purpose; products that provide a lower cost based on life-cycle costs, not purchase price; products that meet the approved Environmental Attribute Code (ENAC) by being water efficient, energy efficient, low standby power, or bio-based. The Department of Defense's Green Procurement Program policy and strategy were issued in August 2004. The policy formally established a DoD Green Procurement Program (GPP). The DoD's GPP is a comprehensive strategy for implementing environmentally preferred practices while sustaining the overall mission. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Aviation formed the Hazardous Minimization and Green Products Branch based at Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR) in March 2009. Its mission is to facilitate the increased availability and use of green products by DLA Aviation customers.
