GEC provides a quarterly update on the development schedule for the updated EPEAT Criteria by sustainability impact area. These criteria will be applied across all EPEAT ICT product categories, starting with Computers & Displays, Imaging Equipment, Mobile Phones, Televisions, and Servers. Of note this quarter, we’ve made some updates to the development schedule and added information on the implementation plan for the updated EPEAT criteria, which was released in January 2023. The Final Implementation Plan for Updated EPEAT Criteria identifies key dates in the transition process and provides additional details on other key activities that will support an efficient and successful transition, including recognition for manufacturers who adopt the Climate Change Mitigation Criteria early (called ‘Early Adopter Status’). For convenience, this quarterly update also provides links to the most recent public drafts of criteria and supporting State of Sustainability Research.
