The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) is a system based on IEEE 1680 - 2006 environmental performance standard to evaluate how green the electronic products are. Currently, EPEAT covers desktop computers, notebooks and monitors.
Recognising the environmental impacts is becoming growingly essential. Both purchasers and manufacturers are therefore seeking to standardise environmental rules to define a green product. EPEAT meets the needs of both parties. With its standard criteria, purchasers can compare products while manufacturers know how to get green with their product design. The products with EPEAT logo are considered a green product for reducing the environmental impact.
As part of the EPEAT Gold standard, free recycling of the cardboard and foam filler packaging materials of Philips monitors is provided. For information on how to recycle your packaging materials, please refer to your local service centre.
