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.
Recognizing the environmental impacts become growingly essential, both purchasers and manufacturers are seeking for standard 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 products design. The products with EPEAT logo are considered as green product for reducing the environmental impact. Under The Federal Acquisition Regulations, all Federal agencies must purchase at least 95% EPEAT-registered products in all relevant electronic product categories.

About Packaging and Packing Waste Directive
In 1994, The Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (Directive 94/62/EC) was inacted. According to the Directive, packaging material should meet the standard of minimum weight and volume to ensure safety and customer acceptance including concentration levels of lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and mercury which are not exceeded limits in packaging or packaging components. Any material used for containing, protecting, handling, delivery and presentation of any type of goods is considered as packaging material.
An amendment to the directive was introduced in 2004, adding new requirements for packaging waste reuse (a minimum of 60% of packaging waste must be recovered for further use) and energy recycling (55%~80% of all packaging waste must be recycled).
