EPEAT Computer Equipment Assessment Tool
EPEAT "is a procurement tool to help institutional purchasers in the public and private sectors evaluate, compare and select desktop computers, notebooks and monitors based on their environmental attributes. EPEAT also provides a clear and consistent set of performance criteria for the design of products, and provides an opportunity for manufacturers to secure market recognition for efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its products."
EPEAT aligned with ENERGY STAR® 5 for computers in January 2010.
You can access information about EPEAT Gold products through the top three "Greenest E-Gear" links on the right.
EPEAT criteria reflect several categories of environmental attributes that cover the full lifecycle of electronic products. The 1680.1 PC and Display standard addresses:
