Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 6 EPEAT registered IT products purchased by the DEA North Central Laboratory in 2018 will result in environmental impact reductions including:
Reduce use of primary materials by 0.7 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 294 bricks
Avoid the disposal of 6 kg of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 3 bricks
Eliminate 13 kg of solid waste
Avoidance of 4 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 2 MWh of electricity—enough to power one U.S. household for 2 months
Greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 1.3 metric tons of CO2 equivalents—equal to taking one average U.S. passenger car off the road for four months
