“Today marks a milestone in the evolution of EcomNets,” said Raj Kosuri, Chief Executive Officer of EcomNets, which manufactures the Verdio Green PC. “Initially, we were not trying to get the Verdio Green PC certified through any governing body. We simply wanted to create a small computer with a small carbon footprint that was highly recyclable. We saw a need to be energy efficient at the desktop.”
The EPEAT program, partially funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, evaluates computer desktops, laptops, and monitors based on 51 environmental criteria. All EPEAT registered products must meet 23 mandatory environmental criteria. An additional 28 optional criteria are used to determine whether products earn EPEAT Bronze, Silver, or Gold recognition.
