148 KB | 3 files |  PDF, DOC

Complying with environmental edicts starts with the purchasing process. These sample guidelines will help you evaluate client hardware systems against EPA and other green tech standards.

The City and County of San Francisco Committee on Information Technology (COIT) uses this policy to ensure that all information technology purchases meet specific environmental requirements.

This policy requires that all personal computers purchased by the city (including central processing units, monitors and laptops) conform to, at a minimum, the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) Silver standard. Servers and desktop laser printers must also meet similar energy efficiency requirements, including those for Climate Savers Certification and Energy Star qualification.
