The college has a stated purchase Energy Star rated electronics, appliances, and computers. However, Energy Star focuses on energy efficiency; it is not a multi-criteria sustainability standard like EPEAT. The purchasing guidelines and policies with regard to electronics focus on saving energy, centralizing/sharing equipment and donating/recycling old computers. All tech purchases go through ITS to ensure that these guidelines are met.
