Making sustainable procurement easier across government
GSA is expanding our Sustainable Facilities Tool (SFTool) with a new pilot platform that streamlines sustainable product procurement for vendors and buyers.
SFTool is an interactive website hosted by the GSA Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings that shows federal agencies and the general public how to build, buy and operate green.
