EPEAT is an environmental product rating which aims at easing the selection of high performance electronics that support organisations' IT and sustainability goals. The tool is a method for purchasers (governments, institutions, consumers, etc.) to evaluate the effect of a product on the environment. It assesses various life cycle environmental aspects of a device and ranks products as Gold, Silver or Bronze based on a set of environmental performance criteria.

EPEAT is based on 23 mandatory criteria and 28 optional criteria, categorized in 8 fields, from materials selection to end of life management. The label is obtained via the self-evaluation of manufacturers, but the GEC carries out tests to ensure that products are in compliance with EPEAT requirements. Around 4,400 products across 43 countries are covered by the EPEAT.
