Furniture and office equipment is internally recycled within Pace. Before you purchase new furniture or office equipment for your department, check with facilities (DoIT for computers and equipment) and see if they have what you need "in stock." Pace University stores used items which can be reallocated throughout its campuses. If the furniture needed is not in stock, reconditioned (recycled) furniture may be purchased.
Universities hold purchasing power. By committing to sustainaiblity, a policy for all requests for proposals, where feasible, to include sustainability parameters will help ensure expectations are met before a new contract is signed with a vendor.
