EPEAT Benefits

Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 642,287 EPEAT-registered IT products purchased through the NASPO ValuePoint contract will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Reduce use of primary materials by 59,670 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 11,475 elephants
  • Avoid the disposal of 482.3 metric tons of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 3,986 refrigerators
  • Eliminate the equivalent of 1,047 U.S. households’ solid waste for a year—1,948 metric tons
  • Avoidance of 338.4 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 201,350 MWh of electricity—enough to power 16,575 U.S. households for a year
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 121,941.4 metric tons of CO2 equivalents— equal to taking 26,112 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
  • $20,765,000 in lifetime cost savings
