Does your Community of Practice have a mission of addressing the needs and challenges of communities that are disproportionately at risk from climate hazards or other disasters?

Marginalized communities are burdened by chronic stressors such as systemic or institutional racism, poverty, environmental degradation, or health disparities. It is becoming increasingly difficult for these communities to prepare for, respond to, and/or recover from disasters.

local practitioners, community leaders, and decision makers who are responsible for helping their communities withstand disasters and build resilience may benefit from additional knowledge, skills, resources, or partnerships to develop and implement equitable solutions to address the priorities and needs of those communities most at-risk.

Amcor Sorbe is a USDA Certified BioPreferred Product MANDATORY FEDERAL PURCHASING Federal law and the Federal Acquisition Regulation direct that all federal agencies purchase biobased products identified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). To date, USDA has identified Amcor Sorbe as a biobased products for which agencies and their contractors have mandatory purchasing requirements. As USDA identifies product categories for mandatory federal purchasing, minimum biobased content is established for the category.Biobased product purchasing requirements are included in solicitations, blanket purchase agreements, contracts, and specifications. Requirements also extend to purchases made through purchase cards, electronic catalogs, and other procurement vehicles.Directives for the Mandatory Purchasing of Biobased ProductsMandatory federal purchasing requirements for biobased products were established in the 2002 Farm Bill and expanded in the 2008 and 2014 Farm Bills. Biobased purchasing requirements are detailed throughout the Federal Acquisition Regulation including acquisition planning, mandatory purchasing by purchase card, source selection, mandatory contract clauses, and general policy and provisions.
