Your resource for greener electronics. EPEAT is the definitive global registry for greener electronics. It’s an easy-to-use resource for purchasers, manufacturers, resellers and others wanting to find or promote environmentally preferable products.
The Green Electronics Council uses a “declare and verify” system to govern the addition of products to EPEAT. To register products in EPEAT, manufacturers must sign a contract requiring them to accurately declare that their products meet system criteria. Manufacturers must possess and produce evidence to support all declarations (as specified in the relevant standard) upon request by the Green Electronics Council and/or their Conformity Assurance Body.
This system, designed by the EPEAT system’s original stakeholders, addresses the unique characteristics of the electronic products marketplace. Electronics experience very high rates of change in components and sourcing from product launch through the end of their commercial lives. Certification is currently offered for the Mobile Phone category and it is being developed for the remaining product categories.
