In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the safety of human life or where necessary to protect certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information. Please note that all information on the EPA website may not be up to date, and transactions and inquiries submitted to the EPA website may not be processed or responded to until appropriations are enacted.

We've made some changes to If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot.

Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC)

Moving forward, federal facilities that are interested in being recognized for their work in electronic stewardship, should join the Federal Green Challenge.

Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC)

The Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC) was a partnership program that encouraged federal facilities and agencies to purchase greener electronics, reduce impacts of electronics during use, and manage used electronics in an environmentally safe way.  The program ended the partnership and awards sections of the program in August 2013, but is still providing technical information through webinars and by updating the resources on the website.
