Criteria for purchasing non-polluting products. A handbook to make allowance for environmental protection in public administration and on the part of public buyers. Umweltfreundliche Beschaffung. Handbuch zur Beruecksichtigung des Umweltschutzes in der oeffentlichen Verwaltung und im Einkauf

Abstract

This is a comprehensive, independent handbook giving full information on the criteria for identifying products as non-polluting. Buying agents will in many cases not be in a position to establish the non-polluting quality of products for themselves or to choose among the many types the one product that is least likely to pollute the environment. The book brings light into this complexity and facilitates the choice of many products from the point of view of environmental protection. Furthermore any manufacturer of a product or system will be interested to learn about the demands public buyers will in future make on their products. The following groups of products are analyzed as to their non-polluting quality, and are described: products for use in offices, and general equipment - motor vehicles - building construction - underground working - energy management - water management - washing, dry-cleaning, and hygiene - horticulture and landscaping - problems of waste disposal. With 47 figs., 20 tabs..
