Washington Gas purchasing decisions take into account a variety of stringent criteria. The Washington Gas Procurement department and other business units consider recycled content or environmentally preferable products as part of any sourcing event or purchase decision. The recycled or environmentally preferable product should be selected unless a performance issue arises or the cost of the product is unreasonably expensive.
Additionally, when securing goods and services, Washington Gas will evaluate vendor sustainability practices as part of the RFP process. The evaluation of the vendor’s sustainability practices will be factored into vendor selection.
