- About EPEAT
Businesses and institutions play a major role in the transition to a low-carbon economy. With trillions of dollars in combined purchasing power, organizations must increasingly make decisions that ensure a sustainable future both for their bottom line and for the planet.
One easy and effective way to show progress is to align technology purchases with sustainability goals by requiring EPEAT registration. Not only can this help streamline electronics purchasing processes, it can also generate demonstrable environmental and financial benefits. Specifying EPEAT in electronics purchase agreements also sends a clear signal to suppliers that the market demands more-sustainable practices throughout a device’s lifecycle.
EPEAT is a free and trusted source of environmental product ratings that makes it easy to select high-performance electronics that meet an organization’s IT and sustainability goals. Manufacturers register products based on the devices’ ability to meet various criteria developed and agreed upon by diverse stakeholders to address the full lifecycle of an electronic product. The Green Electronics Council and other third-party assessors then audit the accuracy of those claims on an ongoing basis. This system ensures all products listed in the EPEAT database truly represent environmental leadership.
Hundreds of businesses, schools, hospitals and governments worldwide trust EPEAT to inform and streamline their purchase of more-sustainable electronics. EPEAT helps purchasers of all sizes reduce their environmental impact and gain recognition as leaders in sustainable procurement without limiting product selection. With EPEAT, organizations can easily and effectively focus on functionality, features and sustainability attributes that reduce their risks, knowing their efforts align with others’ to move markets.
