  • 2. User Benefits For Purchasers A single, credible environmental performance rating to efficiently address lifecycle environmental issues in purchasing specifications across electronic product categories For Industry Consistent environmental performance criteria for design of products and related services across multiple geographies. Opportunity for market recognition for design and service strategies that reduce products environmental impact. PRESENTATION TITLE Copyright 2011 Green Electronics Council
  • 3. What products does EPEAT cover? Currently: PC/Display Imaging equipment Televisions Up next: Servers Mobile devices PRESENTATION TITLE Copyright 2011 Green Electronics Council
