Green Electronics Council

GEC logoAbout

Green Electronics Council (GEC) is a mission-driven 501c(4) non-profit that collaborates to achieve a world in which only sustainable IT products are designed, manufactured, and purchased. Founded initially to manage EPEAT, the leading global ecolabel for IT products, GEC helps both manufacturers and large-scale purchasers to understand the challenges facing sustainable IT, commit to address those challenges, and act to change internal operational, manufacturing and procurement behaviors.
