The Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool will become as ubiquitous as the Energy Star symbol.  It is a US program to indicate that a PC has been constructed with the environment in mind.  From reduced levels of heavy metals, to eco-friendly packaging, there is a list of 11 different requirements that must be met to be certified EPEAT.  Find out more on this new(ish) tool at ECO PC Review.

"EPEAT is a tool to help buyers identify environmentally friendlier computer equipment, and to encourage

manufacturers to develop greener IT products. Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool was launched in June

2006. It's a "green mark" program for computing products, the first in the US, and it's had the backing of the White

House since January. Virtually every major PC brand is represented: HP, Dell, Lenovo, Apple, Sony, Gateway, Toshiba,

Fujitsu, Panasonic, Sona, MPC, Northern Micro, and CTL. Long overdue, not without flaws but still a welcome start."
