Clark University Purchasing Policy—ENERGY STAR Policy
It is Clark University's Purchasing Policy to acquire only those products that have met the ENERGY STAR specifications for energy efficiency and have earned the ENERGY STAR rating when such rating is available for both single and or mass purchasing of goods.
When an ENERGY STAR rating is available for a product category, then pProducts in this category without an ENERGY STAR rating can not be acquired for University use either by gift or purchase.
Requests for exceptions to this policy, due to concerns for cost inefficiency, inappropriateness of intended use, safety or other comparable energy efficiency ratings, can be submitted with justifications to the Business Manager.
In keeping with the Clark University Environmental Sustainability efforts, it is the responsibility of all departments to follow this policy and look for the ENERGY STAR rating for all products purchased directly or through sub-contractors.
