Apple Pulled out of the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool

The organizers of Electronic Product Environment Assessment Tool (EPEAT) announced last week that Apple was withdrawing its products from registry and would no longer submit new devices to receive ratings.

“We regret that Apple will no longer be registering its products in EPEAT,”the organisers said. “We hope that they will decide to do so again at some point in future.

The news prompted speculations among government agencies; as a result city officials in San Francisco have announced to block local governments agencies from buying new Apple Macintosh computers.

Apple has not explained why it abandoned the standard which it helped create in 2006.

However, an article by Infoworld – highlighted on EPEAT’s site – links the move to manufacturing techniques used to make the latest version of the firm’s MacBook Pro, which features a 5.1 million pixel high-definition display.
