As procurement professionals (knowingly or unknowingly) await regulations promulgated in an effort to adapt to and mitigate climate change, significant opportunities exist within current federal regulations and policy to affect change. For now, the burden to stimulate innovation falls upon procurement professionals, individually, and collectively. In that context, information is power. What better place to start than with a good book?

With an eye towards informing productive conversations across the federal acquisition community about evolving expectations, practices, and policies in sustainable procurement, this article suggests some reading from the massive and diverse body of work related to climate change.

This article is part of the "Driving Climate Action Through Federal Procurement Practices" series devoted to Sustainable Procurement in Contract Management magazine, published by the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) and its community of practice (COP) to raise awareness of procurement's role in adapting to and mitigating climate change, support knowledge sharing about existing work in this area, provide resources and training to contracting professionals, and integrate sustainability into contracting professional standards.
