EPEAT Benefits

Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 51,367 EPEAT-registered IT products purchased by the Cleveland Clinic in 2018 will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Reduce use of primary materials by 7,540 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 1,450 elephants
  • Avoid the disposal of 55 metric tons of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 455 refrigerators
  • Eliminate the equivalent of 135 U.S. households’ solid waste for a year—251 metric tons
  • Avoidance of 42 metric tons of water pollutant emissions

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 24,146 MWh of electricity—enough to power 1,988 U.S. households for a year
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 14,772 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking 3,163 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
  • $2,484,578 in lifetime cost savings
