EPEAT 101
  • Jeff Omelchuck
  • Green Electronics Council

Overview
  • What is EPEAT
  • Who uses EPEAT
  • How was it developed
  • How does it function
  • Where is it going
  • Website orientation search functionality,
    purchaser resources, benefits calculator, etc
  • QA

What is EPEAT?
Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool
  • An environmental procurement tool designed to
    help IT purchasers address environmental concerns
    in their purchasing process for electronic
    products. Today the system covers laptops,
    desktops, and monitors and is in the process of
    expanding to include Imaging Equipment
    (printers/scanners/etc.) and TVs.
  • Guidance for Purchasers

Guidance for Manufacturers
What is EPEAT?
  • EPEAT provides clear and consistent performance
    criteria for the design of products and related
    services and provides an opportunity for
    manufacturers to secure market recognition for
    efforts to reduce the environmental impacts of
    their products.

A Product Rating System
  • EPEAT is not a company performance assessment. A
    single manufacturer may have EPEAT Gold, Silver,
    Bronze and unrated products.
  • Applies only to complete computers not
    components, not data centers
  • Purchasers focus products that improve their
    own organizations environmental performance

Why Start with PCs ?
Printers (6)
LAN Office Telecoms (7)
Mobile Telecoms (9)
PCs and Monitors (39) (excluding embodied energy)
Fixed-Line Telecoms (15)
Servers, including cooling (23)
ICT accounts for approximately 2 of global CO2
emissions.
Thanks to Gartner Intl for this information and
analysis

Sample Contract Language
  • For desktops, laptops and monitors
  • The Government reserves the right to require or
    otherwise provide preference on contractor
    solutions that include specific models of desktop
    computers, notebooks and monitors qualified
    through the Electronics Products Environmental
    Assessment Tool (EPEAT) or its successor.
  •        
  • For forthcoming printing and imaging equipment
  • DEPARTMENT/AGENCY reserves the right to
    require, via upcoming technology refreshes to
    this contract, products meeting the upcoming IEEE
    1680.2 Standard for the Environmental Assessment
    of Imaging Equipment, and/or the IEEE 1680.3
    Standard for the Environmental Assessment of
    Televisions once these standards are final and
    publicly available. The Contractor shall be
    responsible for ensuring equipment meets the
    latest EPEAT registration requirements before it
    is delivered. The registration requirements and a
    list of all equipment meeting the requirements
    will be available at www.epeat.net.
  • At the time that these new IEEE standards are
    final, suppliers will be required to provide
    quarterly reports quantifying the number of EPEAT
    registered products purchased under this
    contract.
