The Common Council today unanimously passed legislation directing the City of Milwaukee’s Department of Administration– Purchasing Division to study the feasibility and costs of implementing an environmentally-friendly purchasing program for the city.

Sponsored by Alderman Cavalier Johnson, Common Council File #181909 would allow Milwaukee to use its purchasing power to reduce pollution and support private-sector environmental innovation. Many other cities and states, and the federal government have implemented Environmentally Friendly Purchasing Programs to secure greener, more sustainable products and services for their jurisdictions.

“This legislation is the next step in Milwaukee’s evolution as an eco-friendly and environmentally conscious city,” said Alderman Johnson. “Progress like this will help us build a better future for generations to come.”

Co-sponsors of this legislation include Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, Alderwoman Chantia Lewis, Alderman Ashanti Hamilton, Alderman Michael J. Murphy, Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II and Alderman Khalif J. Rainey.
