Epeat is doing a great good for the environment. But awareness of Epeat certification was very low among the public. Like ISO certifictaion, Epeat must express its symbol for environmentally-friendly electronics. Getting global recognition requires a lot of advertisement.

I know of Energy Star certified, I'm not aware of EPEAT.  I would like to know the connection between the two.

So why isn't "Epeat" a household name like "Energy Star"?

@Bruce, why do we need "Epeat" when we already have "Energy Star". How is Epeat different from Energy star ?

Is this 'Epeat"  an organization of international reach. If so then it should become the forum of all the activities and govt legislations in reducing the use of Hazardous materials and  the energy saving measures in electronic manufactruing across the world

Thanks for introduction. Will it eventually become part of some standard defining body?

Ariella Yes, I believe alliances are the way to promote the brand. But it will depend on players like Walmart and other big retailers to back it up and support the initiative.

Engergy Star has good name recognition because  it is seen frequenlty. People see it on appliance labels, as well as strategic partnerships with businesses, utilities, and the government that promise rebates or tax breaks for Energy Star qualified products. Perhaps Epeat can form some alliances that will put its name in front of more people.
