EPEAT® is the leading global ecolabel for the IT sector. The EPEAT program provides independent verification of manufacturers’ claims and the EPEAT online Registry lists sustainable products from a broader range of manufacturers than any comparable ecolabel. National governments, including the United States, and thousands of private and public institutional purchasers around the world use EPEAT as part of their sustainable procurement decisions.
The EPEAT online Registry is the definitive resource for finding technology products designed to minimize impact on the planet. The sustainability standards on which the EPEAT ecolabel is based are developed through a balanced voluntary consensus process involving multiple stakeholders, including sustainability advocates, manufacturer representatives, purchasing professionals, academics, recycling providers, and policy representatives. You can learn more at the EPEAT website.
The Green Electronics Council (GEC) manages the EPEAT program, including ensuring the integrity of the EPEAT system. EPEAT is one example of how GEC supports institutional purchasers around the world, fostering a market for sustainable IT products to achieve our mission of a world of only sustainable IT.
