Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 724 EPEAT registered IT products purchased by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) in 2018 will result in environmental impact reductions including:
Reduce use of primary materials by 36 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 7 elephants
Avoid the disposal of 0.4 metric tons of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 3 refrigerators
Eliminate the equivalent of 0.4 U.S. households’ solid waste for a year—0.8 metric tons
Avoidance of 0.2 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 122 MWh of electricity—enough to power 10 U.S. households for a year
Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 75 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking 16 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
$12,292 in lifetime cost savings
