US Federal Agency
Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 70 EPEAT registered electronics purchased by DEA Office of Training in 2016 will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Avoid the disposal of 47 kg of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 24 bricks
  • Eliminate the equivalent of one U.S. household’s solid waste for two weeks —91 kg
  • Avoidance of 27 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 15,127 kWh of electricity—enough to power 1 U.S. home for a year
  • Reduction of 2.7 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions— equivalent to taking 2 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
