New York State Executive Order #4 requires that copy paper, janitorial paper and other paper supplies purchased by each State agency or authority shall be composed of 100% post-consumer recycled content to the maximum extent practicable, and all copy and janitorial paper shall be process chlorine-free to the extent practicable, unless such products do not meet required form, function or utility, or the cost of the product is not competitive.
The purchasing department and the office of sustainability issued a university wide memo with regards to the order. The order is also listed on the purchasing web page. http://www.albany.edu/purchasing/state_funded/executive_orders_sf.html as well as the office of environmental sustainability: http://www.albany.edu/gogreen/4.purchasing.shtml
Purchasing tracks the bulk procurement of office paper and facilities management tracks the purchase of janitorial paper. The University at Albany complies with this order and regularly reports this data to the state at the end of each fiscal year.
