To determine points for this credit, the sustainability coordinator collected all expenditures on desktop, laptop, and monitor purchases and leases from June 2011 to June 2012. The sustainability coordinator then researched every model that was purchased or leased to determine which models were EPEAT Gold, Silver, Bronze, or not rated at all. Out of $453,876.86 spent on computers, laptops, and monitors, 95% of that was spent on EPEAT Gold or Silver products.
