EPEAT Available in India


According to eeherald.com EPEAT, the definitive global rating system for greener electronics, is now available in India for electronics manufacturers as well as electronics users to validate environmental impact of the electronic products they make or buy. India becomes the 43rd country to have EPEAT registration and verification services.

Also, it is noted that at the Confederation of Indian Industry’s Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Development (CESD) and the Green Electronics Council held in Delhi, attendees discussed how EPEAT can support and reinforce Indian efforts to reduce the environmental impacts of electronics.

EPEAT stands for “Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool.”  It is an easy-to-use resource for purchasers, manufacturers, resellers and others to identify environmentally preferable devices. The EPEAT system combines strict, comprehensive criteria for design, production, energy use and recycling with ongoing independent verification of the manufacturer’s claims. EPEAT was developed through a stakeholder consensus process and is managed by the Green Electronics Council, a non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon, USA.
