Assessment Tools for Electronics Stewardship

On this page:


Electronics Environmental Benefits Calculator

The downloadable Electronics Environmental Benefits Calculator (EEBC) (last bullet titled "Benefits Calculator") estimates the environmental benefits of improving the purchasing, use and disposal of computer products; specifically computer desktops, liquid crystal display (LCD) and cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors and computer notebooks/laptops. The EEBC also calculates the benefits of mobile phone reuse and recycling, and of recycling mixed loads of electronic equipment. Find out more information about using the EEBC.


Waste Reduction Model (WARM)

EPA created the Waste Reduction Model (WARM) to help solid waste planners and organizations track and voluntarily report greenhouse gas emissions reductions and energy savings from several different waste management practices, including sustainable electronics management.


Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT)

The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) is a procurement tool created to help institutional purchasers in the public and private sectors evaluate, compare, and select desktop computers, notebooks, and monitors based on their environmental attributes. EPEAT also provides a clear and consistent performance criteria for product design and provides an opportunity for manufacturers to secure market recognition for efforts to reduce the environmental impact of their products.
