For the fourth consecutive year, the Green Electronics Council awarded its Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) Purchaser Award to the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Legacy Management (LM). The EPEAT Purchaser Award recognizes organizations for their excellence in sustainable procurement of electronic equipment. LM successfully implemented policy for environmentally preferable procurement of electronic equipment, including vendor contract specifications requiring that all equipment (e.g., computers, monitors, copiers, etc.) achieve bronze registration or better in the EPEAT system. Over their lifetime, the 387 EPEAT-registered electronics purchased by LM in 2017 will not only generate substantial savings for the organization, but also significantly reduce LM’s overall carbon footprint on the environment.
