Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 491 EPEAT registered IT products purchased by the DEA Office of Training in 2018 will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Reduce use of primary materials by 33 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 6 elephants
  • Avoid the disposal of 0.3 metric tons of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 2 refrigerators
  • Eliminate the equivalent of 0.7 U.S. households’ solid waste for a year—1.2 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 120 MWh of electricity—enough to power 10 U.S. households for a year
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 68 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking 15 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
  • $11,487 in lifetime cost savings
