The Latitude D630 from Dell Inc. (Round Rock, Texas, U.S.) became the first globally available notebook computer to achieve gold status with the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT).

EPEAT is a procurement system that helps purchasers compare and select products based on environmental attributes. The program helps purchasers evaluate products based on criteria, including:

  • Reduction/elimination of environmentally sensitive materials
  • Materials selection
  • Design for end of life
  • Product longevity/life cycle extension
  • Energy conservation
  • End of life management
  • Corporate performance
  • Packaging

Products meeting or exceeding each of the 23 required criteria are recognized as EPEAT Bronze. Products meeting all required criteria and at least 50% of the tool’s optional criteria are recognized as EPEAT Silver. Products meeting all required criteria and at least 75% of the optional criteria are recognized as EPEAT Gold.

Dell's OptiPlex 740 and 745 Energy Smart mini-tower systems, two of the company’s most-demanded commercial desktop products, are also now EPEAT Gold listed. Dell already has shipped nearly 4 million OptiPlex 745 family systems.

In addition to meeting Energy Star 4.0 requirements and providing 25% post-consumer recycled content in cardboard packaging, Dell offers large institutional customers who purchase the three models the option of a returnable and reusable packaging program.

"Dell is distinct in our industry in that we are integrating environmental standards into mainstream, high-volume global products. This enables our customers to achieve their own goals around performance, cost and environmental stewardship," said David Lear, director of environmental affairs for Dell.
