As part of its on-going commitment to be environmentally responsible, Kodak Alaris has added 12 document scanners to the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT), the definitive global registry for greener electronics. EPEAT has verified that the KodakS2085f Scanner and Kodak S3000, S2000 and E1000 Series Scanners meet ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency and the reduction of hazardous substances and waste products, earning the EPEAT Gold ecolabel, which is the highest level of certification possible. Kodak Alaris has more Gold-registered scanners than any other manufacturer.

Managed by the Green Electronics Council (GEC), EPEAT is an easy-to-use resource for purchasers, manufacturers, resellers and others wanting to find or promote environmentally preferable products. Public and private entities in more than 42 countries use EPEAT as a uniform purchasing specification.

“In total, we have 33 products listed on the EPEAT Registry,” said John Blake, Senior Vice President Marketing and Product Management, Alaris, a division of Kodak Alaris. “All of our scanners are rated at least Silver and exceed EPEAT’s requirements for environmental performance, and now twelve of our scanners are rated Gold. This achievement is a clear demonstration of Kodak Alaris’ commitment to a sustainable future, and to providing customers with high quality, environmentally-friendly products.”

To be added to the EPEAT Registry, products must meet a stringent set of environmental performance criteria. In addition to these baseline criteria, which qualify a product for the Bronze ecolabel, there are also a set of optional criteria, which determine if a product is rated Silver or Gold.
