Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 3,098 EPEAT-registered IT products purchased by the Maryland Department of Transportation in 2018 will result in environmental impact reductions including:
A State law effective October 1, 2012 (HB 448, Chapter 372) requires State agencies purchasing computers and other electronic products in categories covered by EPEAT to purchase models rated EPEAT Silver or Gold unless the requirement is waived by the Department of Information Technology (DoIT).
Guidelines provided by DGS require planning and coordination of the proper disposition of Information Technology equipment. A new state law effective October 1, 2012 (HB 448, Chapter 372) requires state agencies awarding contracts for services to recycle electronic products to award the contract to a recycler that is R2 or e-Stewards certified.
