  • Reduce use of primary materials by 64 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 12 elephants
  • Avoid the disposal of 594 kg of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 5 refrigerators
  • Eliminate the equivalent of one U.S. households’ solid waste for a year—2 metric tons
  • Avoidance of 381 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 219 MWh of electricity—enough to power 18 U.S. households for a year
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 134 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking 29 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
