Wipro, Inc. purchases 100% EPEAT-registered PCs and Displays.

Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 12,778 EPEAT registered electronics purchased by Wipro Limited in 2016 will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Reduce use of primary materials by 1,050 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 29 tractor-trailer 18-wheelers
  • Avoid the disposal of 8.1 metric tons of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 66 refrigerators
  • Eliminate the equivalent of 10 U.S. households’ solid waste for a year—19.6 metric tons
  • Avoidance of 3.9 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 2.9 million kWh of electricity—enough to power 228 U.S. homes for a year
  • Reduction of 520 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions— equivalent to taking 374 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
  • $300,000 in lifetime cost savings
