EPEAT: Green Computer Registry

Posted on Saturday, Jul 14 2007 @ 13:30 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
EPEAT is a tool to help buyers identify environmentally friendlier computer equipment, and to encourage manufacturers to develop greener IT products. Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool was launched in June 2006. It's a "green mark" program for computing products, the first in the US, and it's had the backing of the White House since January. Virtually every major PC brand is represented: HP, Dell, Lenovo, Apple, Sony, Gateway, Toshiba, Fujitsu, Panasonic, Sona, MPC, Northern Micro, and CTL. Long overdue, not without flaws but still a welcome start.
