EPEAT Benefits

Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 527 EPEAT-registered IT products purchased by Kaiser Permanente in 2018 will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Reduce use of primary materials by 37 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 7 elephants
  • Avoid the disposal of 391 kg of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 3 refrigerators
  • Eliminate the equivalent of 1 U.S. households’ solid waste for four months—671 kg
  • Avoidance of 190 kg 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 121 MWh of electricity—enough to power 10 U.S. households for a year
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 76 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking 16 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
  • $12,450 in lifetime cost savings
