Apple Pivots, Returns To EPEAT Ratification

14 July 2012


We’ve recently heard from many loyal Apple customers who were disappointed to learn that we had removed our products from the EPEAT rating system. I recognize that this was a mistake. Starting today, all eligible Apple products are back on EPEAT.

There must have been a lot of people who complained to cause Apple to revert their decision so quickly.

Originally, I thought Apple had pulled out of the standard because the new Pro wasn’t going to meet the requirements. This has turned out not to be the case; the Retina Pro is now listed on their site and has been awarded the highest level of compliance.

In the original statement a week ago, Apple said “their design direction was no longer consistent” with the standard. Does that mean future products will not comply?
