42 Lexmark products earn EPEAT Climate+

October 25, 2023

Lexmark announced that 42 of its imaging products are among the first to earn the stringent new EPEAT Climate+ designation from the Global Electronics Council (GEC).

A total of 43 products earned the EPEAT Climate+ distinction in the Imaging Equipment product category when the programme launched on the 3 October 2023, 42 of which are from Lexmark.

Climate+ is a new product designation from the GEC meant to connect forward-thinking electronics brands with carbon-conscious purchasers. Climate+ designated products meet progressive new requirements developed in a multi-stakeholder process meant to reduce their lifecycle carbon, potentially years ahead of the rest of the market. The products set themselves apart on the EPEAT Registry because of these climate change mitigation measures.

“We are proud that Lexmark products account for 42 of the 43 imaging products that meet the stringent EPEAT Climate+ requirements,” said John Gagel, Chief Sustainability Officer, Lexmark. “These requirements extend beyond the products themselves to how we manage our own operations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Customers across the globe can be confident that by choosing Lexmark, they are making a positive choice for the environment.”

Bob Mitchell, CEO of GEC, said, “By equipping individuals and organisations with valuable insights into what constitutes a climate-conscious product, EPEAT Climate+ provides a simple way to collectively recognise and mitigate carbon emissions in the lifecycle of electronics.”

In addition to verified product greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions disclosures, manufacturers seeking Climate+ designation must also demonstrate their commitment to several other critical requirements. These include energy-efficient upstream manufacturing, GHG reduction targets, renewable energy sourcing, and product energy efficiency standards. These comprehensive criteria are specifically designed to track and, where possible, reduce GHG emissions throughout the entire product lifecycle – from material mining and assembly to use and disposal.

By choosing Climate+ designated products, organisations can drive change with increased transparency about public and third-party verified disclosures of supply chain greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, easing the challenge of procurement related to Scope-3 emissions tracking and decision making.
