Carnegie provides sustainable and responsible product solutions for government facilities to meet the needs of public buildings at the local, state, and federal level.

Sustainable Solutions for Government

The importance of specifying sustainable building products has permeated across industries, and an emphasis on sourcing responsible materials is no different when it comes to government facilities. In fact, Federal law and the Federal Acquisition Regulation direct that all federal agencies purchase biobased products in categories identified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) when possible. As the country gears up for a number of pivotal green initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels, Carnegie remains committed to providing public buildings with sustainable and durable products that stand the test of time and support these initiatives. 


An industry pioneer in delivering eco-conscious products, Carnegie offers certified USDA Biobased products for these interiors, including a variety of biobased Wallcovering and Panel fabrics that carry multiple third party certifications, as well as products that contribute to the LEED certification process.

What is the Biopreferred Program?

Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the goal of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the purchase and use of biobased products. The increased development, purchase, and use of biobased products reduces our nation's reliance on petroleum, increases the use of renewable agricultural resources, and contributes to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts.
Federal law, the Federal Acquisition Regulation, and Presidential Executive Orders direct that all federal agencies purchase biobased products in categories identified by the Department of Agriculture (USDA). To date, USDA has identified 139 categories (e.g. cleaners, carpet, lubricants, paints) of biobased products for which agencies and their contractors have purchasing requirements.
