Certification

EPEAT

All Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers are certified by an environmental impact scoring system known as the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT). The program is overseen by a board of eco-advocates, electronics recyclers and others to help purchasers compare and evaluate computer desktops, laptops and monitors based on their environmental attributes. EPEAT grades factors such as elimination of environmentally-sensitive materials and energy conservation. A Bronze-rated product meets all 23 required criteria. A Silver-rated product meets all 23 required criteria plus at least 50% of the optional criteria. A Gold-rated product meets all 23 required criteria and at least 75% of the optional criteria. All Toughbook computer models are either gold- or silver-rated, ensuring the highest level of environmental performance.
