The UVM Computer Depot is pleased to announce that we offer desktops and notebooks that are EPEAT-rated based upon their environmental attributes. Purchasing computers with the best possible environmental impact ratings is one way the Depot is helping the University realize its vision of becoming the nation’s premier environmental university. Most of the Dell and Apple computers and displays that the Depot currently offers have earned the impressive Gold EPEAT rating.
EPEAT, the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool, is a system to help purchasers in the public and private sectors to evaluate, compare and select desktop computers, notebooks, and monitors based on their environmental impact. EPEAT also provides a clear and consistent set of performance criteria for the design of products, and provides an opportunity for manufacturers to secure market recognition for efforts to reduce the environmental footprint of their products. For more information about the EPEAT program and a searchable database of product rankings, click here or go to www.epeat.net.
