The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) provides an easy-to-use registry that ranks computers according to 53 factory-to-landfill environmental criteria, including ENERGY STAR energy efficiency standards. 

Purchasing an EPEAT Gold product will reduce your energy costs, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Both the product and its packaging contain a high percentage of recycled materials.
  • It reduces the environmental impacts of manufacturing, use, and disposal.
  • It reduces health risks such as toxic materials and hazardous waste.

When you purchase an EPEAT Gold product and use your computer's power management features, you help NC State meet the campus committments to Sustainability.
