White House Recognizes “Environmentally Preferable” Computer Manufacturers
The White House Council on Environmental Quality and the Federal Environmental Executive have released a list of computer manufacturers that make “environmentally preferable computers and monitors.” The manufacturers make products meeting the new EPEAT green computer standard. President Bush recently mandated that at least 95 percent of federal agency computer purchases be EPEAT registered.
“President Bush’s executive order speaks for itself. Federal agencies must buy EPEAT registered products when the products meet agency needs,” said Edwin Pinero, the Federal Environmental Executive. “Highly advanced, affordable, and environmentally-preferable computers are already being sought by the Department of Homeland Security, NASA, Department of Energy, Department of the Interior, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Executive Office of the President.”
The manufacturers are (links lead to EPEAT profiles): Apple, CTL, Dell, Gateway, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Mind Computer Products, NEC Display Solutions, Northern Micro, Phillips, Samsung, Panasonic, Sona, Toshiba, and Sony.
