2019 EPEAT Purchaser Award Winner – 1 Star

Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 2,449 EPEAT-registered IT products purchased by the Department of Veterans Affairs, ITOPS will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Conservation of 304 kg of materials, equal to the weight of 3 refrigerators
    58,152 liters of water savings, enough to fill 189 bathtubs

Energy-Related Savings
EPEAT’s requirement that registered products meet, and often exceed, the latest ENERGY STAR specifications means these products will consume less energy throughout their useful life, resulting in:

  • Savings of 64.5 MWh of electricity—enough to power 5 U.S. households for a year
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 14 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking 3 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
  • $811 in lifetime cost savings
