Green Purchasing: The New Eco-Industrial Revolution Has Begun!

  • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Ramapo College of New Jersey, Alumni Lounges.
As former Chief Procurement Officer for Rutgers, Kevin Lyons revolutionized the field of purchasing, reshaping it as the practice of sustainable institutional product consumption. After
earning a Ph.D., Dr. Lyons joined the Rutgers Business School faculty addressing Supply Chain Management and "Supply Chain Archeology." There he studies the management of global supply
chains, procurement systems and product-end-of-life so as to meet environmental, social, economic and ethical sustainable development criteria, reduce environmental impact, and
address climate change impacts to reduce risk and cost.

He also serves as Associate Director at the EcoComplex and the Rutgers Energy Institute. His 2002 book from Pluto Press, Buying for the future, was described by David Orr as combining "a vision of what our proudest institutions ought to stand for with practical details of how to join ideals and behavior.... I know of no better or more profound message to transmit to a generation of young people that often sees little reason for hope."
