EPEAT®

EPEAT®  (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool)  is a 3rd party global rating system for greener electronics.  It is a resource for purchasers, manufacturers and resellers to use to identify environmentally preferable electronic devices, including Imaging Equipment. The EPEAT testing criteria are strict, comprehensive criteria for design, production, energy use and recycling that requires ongoing independent verification of manufacturer claims.

EPEAT is a resource to help you identify high-performance, environmentally preferable products. Businesses, government agencies, schools, hospitals and other institutions are using EPEAT as the environmental benchmark to help them make informed purchasing decisions. By using EPEAT standards to purchase greener electronics, you will be assuring your organization’s environmental sustainability goals and help to preserve our natural resources.
