Apple Addresses EPEAT Withdrawal

Apple Addresses EPEAT Withdrawal

Apple representative Kristin Huguet, speaking with The Loop:

“Apple takes a comprehensive approach to measuring our environmental impact and all of our products meet the strictest energy efficiency standards backed by the US government, Energy Star 5.2,” said Huguet.

“We also lead the industry by reporting each product’s greenhouse gas emissions on our website, and Apple products are superior in other important environmental areas not measured by EPEAT, such as removal of toxic materials.”

Apple appears to have moved away from the rather outdated EPEAT environmental standards, which do not even cover smartphones or tablets.
