Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 9,498 EPEAT- registered IT products purchased by the World Bank Group in 2018 will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Reduce use of primary materials by 1,449 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 279 elephants

  • Avoid the disposal of 9.7 metric tons of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of  80 refrigerators

  • Eliminate the equivalent of 22 U.S. households’ solid waste for a year—41 metric tons

  • Avoidance of 7.5 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 4,540 MWh of electricity—enough to power 374 U.S. households for a year
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 2,828 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking 606 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
  • $470,000 in lifetime cost savings
