Stanford University has a service misson to deploy its strengths to benefit our region, country and world. With an annual spend of 2.8 billion dollars on goods and services, responsible purchasing is a key component to achieving this mission. Procurement Services and Sustainable Stanford have put together a set of Responsible Purchasing Guidelines to provide a framework for guiding and encouraging campus consumers to include social and environmental impacts into their purchasing decisions.
This site is curated to only include products that meet these guidelines, allowing you to easily ensure that your purchases have a positive sustainability impact. Once you find the product you are interested in purchasing, navigate to Stanford’s iProcurement portal to make the actual purchase.
