Why did Apple withdraw from EPEAT?
rtrembley 1 year ago
Apple dropped its green EPEAT environmental standard, and claimed that they use their own environmental standards that are stricter than those of EPEAT. Well, that's convenient, and may even be true, but if so why not also meet the EPEAT standard? Some governmental agencies require the EPEAT green standard be met for purchases, and already the City of San Francisco has said that they won't purchase any more Apple products because of this. I'm sure that there will be others. It seems like this could be a move that costs Apple some contracts, and frankly I've always viewed Apple as a pretty environmentally conscious company, so why did they pull out of EPEAT?
