MCP Computer Products, an IT reseller and SBA-certified 8a/woman/minority owned business, today joined the EPEAT® Channel Partner program to improve its expertise in green IT. Becoming an EPEAT Channel Partner reaffirmed the company’s commitment to help its government and enterprise clients identify and purchase greener electronics. MCP Computer Products will rely on the EPEAT Registry for insight into the environmental ratings for electronic devices.
EPEAT is the definitive global rating system for greener electronics. Thousands of products designed to meet stringent environmental criteria are registered in EPEAT, the leading resource for finding technology designed to minimize impact on the planet. Through MCP Computer Products’ expertise in IT equipment, its government and enterprise clients purchase approximately $20 million USD in electronics annually.
“The EPEAT Channel Partner program gives us a single, credible resource to highlight our commitment to provide Green IT products to our federal and commercial clients,” said Sergie Ghai, VP of Sales and Marketing at MCP.
EPEAT is a purchasing requirement for U.S. federal agencies and is integrated into hundreds of government, education, healthcare and enterprise IT contracts worldwide. In addition, EPEAT is becoming an integral part of the IT channel, with leading distributors and resellers using EPEAT programs to support their customers’ green purchasing initiatives for PCs, displays, televisions, printers, copiers, multifunction devices and other Imaging Equipment.
EPEAT Channel Partners commit to provide EPEAT product rating information in their catalogs and to train their sales staff to support customers’ EPEAT purchasing and model contract requirements.
