Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) is a comprehensive global rating system for electronic devices operated by the Green Electronics Council, a non-profit whose work was initially funded in part by a grant from the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

Devices registered in the EPEAT database are thoroughly evaluated for:

  • The reduction or elimination of environmentally-sensitive materials
  • Product longevity and lifecycle extension
  • Responsible end-of-life recycling
  • Energy conservation
  • Responsible packaging
  • Corporate performance

All products on the registry meet the latest technical specifications for ENERGY STAR® and are classified as Bronze, Silver, or Gold depending on the number of criteria met. Planar is proud to offer a variety of displays with a Silver rating for the United States market.
