HDR Adopted EPEAT Bronze minimum standards for leased and purchased computers, laptops and monitors, effective January 1, 2007. EPEAT, which stands for Electronics Products Environmental Assessment Tool, is a evaluation tool for computers, monitors and laptops that considers performance criteria including 23 required criteria and 28 optional criteria in 8 categories, including Energy Star rating (meaning more energy efficient equipment as compared to standard options). Participating in this program and incorporating the requirements into our leasing and purchasing helps HDR to ensure we are making environmentally responsible purchases while providing our employees with the tools they need to get their jobs done.
