Institution purchases EPEAT registered products for desktop and notebook/laptop computers, displays, thin clients, tablets/slates, televisions and imaging equipment (copiers, digital duplicators, facsimile machines, mailing machines, multifunction devices, printers and scanners).

This credit does not include servers, smartphones, or specialized equipment for which no EPEAT certified products are available.


This credit applies to all institutions. 


Institutions earn the maximum of 1 point available for this credit for purchasing exclusively EPEAT Gold computers, tablets/slates, televisions and imaging equipment. Incremental points are awarded based on the percentage of purchased products that are EPEAT registered at each level. For example, an institution that purchased 50 percent EPEAT Gold and 50 percent non-certified products would earn 0.5 points (half of the points available).

Points for this credit are calculated automatically in the STARS Reporting Tool as follows:

EPEAT registration level



Expenditures on EPEAT registered electronics


Total expenditures on electronics
