EPEAT & Green Electronics Consultancy

EPEAT product registration and conformity assurance

Electronic products are often produced under conditions that are very harmful to the environment and can hardly or only with difficulty be recycled. Since sustainability is becoming increasingly important for retailers and buyers in the evaluation, the comparison and the selection of products, it is necessary to make sustainable options for action transparent.

Conformity Assurance Body for EPEAT

Environmental and social sustainability becomes more and more important for consumers and institutional purchasers, when evaluating, comparing and selecting products. The EPEAT Registry (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) has become the definitive resource and comprehensive environmental rating system for greener electronics. It is based on a set of sustainability standards covering the following product categories:

  • computer & displays
  • imaging equipment
  • televisions
  • mobile phones
  • servers

The environmental criteria cover the entire life cycle of electronic products, including specifications for product design, production, energy consumption and recycling, but also corporate responsibility and social aspects.
