Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 18 EPEAT-registered IT products purchased by Experience Scottsdale will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Reduce use of primary materials by 1.3 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 574 bricks
  • Avoid the disposal of 13 kg of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 6 bricks
  • Eliminate 33 kg of solid waste
  • Avoidance of 9 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 4,040 kWh of electricity—enough to power one U.S. household for four months
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 2.5 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking an average U.S. passenger cars off the road for six months
  • $410 in lifetime cost savings
All procurement efforts shall be driven to provide maximum value for the SCVB. In doing so, it is our belief and experience that EPEAT Gold products can be obtained without sacrificing value or performance.
