- About EPEAT
EPEAT is an easy-to-use resource for identifying high-performance, environmentally preferable products. Join hundreds of businesses, schools, hotels, hospitals and governments around the world that trust EPEAT to help them make informed purchasing decisions. By using EPEAT to purchase greener electronics, you can show progress toward your sustainability goals and build your environmental reputation.
Public and private entities in more than 42 countries use EPEAT as a uniform purchasing specification. Brand owners that create environmentally preferable electronics should register them with EPEAT to build their reputation among these purchasers and gain access to procurement contracts valued at tens of billions of dollars worldwide. With EPEAT, brand owners can both demonstrate and profit from their commitment to developing technology with a reduced environmental impact. Purchasers can view some of the EPEAT-participating manufacturers at this link, which also has some resources for manufacturers that are considering registering devices with EPEAT.
Many organizations support the creation, purchase and promotion of greener electronics, even if they don’t directly create those products themselves. From influential distributors and technology resellers to forward-looking associations and registration partners, the EPEAT registry is widely supported by a host of groups around the world. These organizations and others play an important role in the adoption, sale and future development of greener electronics. These entities include EPEAT Channel Partners, retailers, EPEAT Champions and Product Registration Entities, among others.
