What does EPEAT mean?

Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) is an environmental rating system and a green electronics registry for electronic products, designed to evaluate, compare and select environmentally preferable products. EPEAT is based on a set of environmental performance criteria that cover the full product lifecycle – including eco-design, production, energy use and recycling. It ranks products as EPEAT Gold, Silver or Bronze.
