EPEAT® is the definitive global rating system for greener electronics. The EPEAT registry combines comprehensive environmental performance criteria with ongoing, independent verification of manufacturers’ claims, and it rates more products from a broader range of manufacturers than any other system. Eight national governments, including the United States, and hundreds of private and public purchasers around the world use EPEAT ratings to make informed purchasing decisions.
The EPEAT product registry is the leading resource for finding technology designed to minimize impact on the planet. The environmental standards on which the EPEAT system is based are developed through an open, stakeholder consensus process involving multiple participant types, including environmental advocates, manufacturer representatives, purchasing professionals, researchers, recycling providers, and government regulators. You can learn more at the EPEAT website.
The Green Electronics Council manages the overall technical and business processes of the EPEAT system, including overseeing a global network of Conformity Assurance Bodies and the Conformity Decision Panel. These quality assurance functions help to ensure the integrity of the EPEAT system, while GEC’s work with purchasers around the world enable Participating Manufacturers to leverage their design and production of environmentally preferable electronics.
