EPEAT

EPEAT is a system that helps purchasers evaluate, compare and select electronic products based on their environmental attributes. The system currently covers desktop and laptop computers, thin clients, workstations and computer monitors.

Desktops, laptops and monitors that meet 23 required environmental performance criteria may be registered in EPEAT by their manufacturers in 40 countries worldwide. Registered products are rated Gold, Silver or Bronze depending on the percentage of 28 optional criteria they meet above the baseline criteria. EPEAT operates an ongoing verification program to assure the credibility of the registry.

GST is in the process of becoming a EPEAT Reseller Partner.

Sustainability Management

Beyond compliance, GST is focused on maximizing the sustainability of our client’s assets. This means extending the life of an asset as long as possible, either through asset reuse or through complete commodities recycling – returning to manufacturing feedstock. No e-waste processed by GST will ever go to a landfill. Our detailed sustainability reporting helps our clients exceed internal sustainability goals and compliance audit requirements.

Our Sustainability Management set of services include:

  • Refurbishment
  • Redeployment
  • Charitable Donation
  • Recycling
