Electronics Environmental Benefits Calculator

The Electronics Environmental Benefits Calculator (EEBC) was developed by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assist organizations in estimating the environmental and economic benefits of "greening" the purchase, use and disposal of electronics. This calculator estimates the benefits of purchasing EPEAT-registered products; making improvements in operation of electronic equipment and; proper end-of-life management of electronics (e.g. reuse, donate, and recycle).

Waste Reduction Model (WARM)

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has created WARM to help organizations track and voluntarily report greenhouse gas emissions reductions, and energy savings from several different waste management practices. WARM calculates greenhouse gas (GHG) emisions for baseline and alternative waste management practices including source reduction, recycling, compositing, and landfilling. It is an excellent tool to help purchasers outline the environmental benefits of various waste minimization intitiatives and supports the acquisition of various composting and recycling services.
