drivers for electronics stewardship at doe
Drivers for Electronics Stewardship at DOE
  • Executive Order (E.O.) 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental Energy, and Transportation Management (January 24, 2007)
  • DOE Order 450.1, Chg. 2, Environmental Protection Program (December 2005)
  • Memorandum of Understanding Between the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and Federal agencies, Including DOE (November 2004)
e o 13423 strengthening federal environmental energy and transportation management
E.O. 13423, “Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management”
  • Supersedes previous E.O.s.
  • Drives DOE’s Electronics Stewardship Program.
  • Requires Federal agencies to:
    • Purchase > 95% Electronics Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) registered electronics;
    • Enable Energy Star® features on all computers and monitors;
    • Extend useful life of electronics; and
    • Use environmentally sound practices for end-of-life electronics.
instructions for implementing executive order 13423
“Instructions for Implementing Executive Order 13423”
  • Published March 29, 2007.
  • Requires partnership in the Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC), or implementation of an equivalent electronics stewardship program.
doe order 450 1 chg 2 environmental protection program
DOE Order 450.1, Chg. 2“Environmental Protection Program”
  • Defines DOE Electronics Stewardship Program
    • Modifications anticipated to comply with E.O.13423.
    • Establishes goals for DOE sites to integrate performance-based pollution prevention (P2) into Environmental Management Systems (EMSs).
    • Provides strategies for achieving electronics stewardship goals at DOE sites.
    • Requires annual reporting of EPEAT procurement and green disposition of computers.
mou to promote electronics stewardship
MOU to Promote Electronics Stewardship
  • Signed by CEQ and 10 other Federal agencies, including DOE.
  • Promotes common strategies for electronics stewardship across Federal agencies. Commits signatories to:
    • Procure environmentally preferable electronics.
    • Enabling electronics power management capabilities.
    • Recycle and reuse of surplus (end-of-life) electronics.
e o 13423 requires purchasing epeat registered electronics

E.O. 13423

>95% of purchases must be EPEAT-registered.

Applies to electronics for which EPEAT standards exist.

IT contracts must incorporate appropriate language.

IT contracts must address applicable FAR clauses (Note: FAR case is pending).

Products should be EPEAT Silver or higher, if available.


DOE O 450.1

Requires buying EPEAT registered electronics.

DOE Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Program Overview & DOE Acquisition Guide

Encourages buying EPEAT-registered electronics.

DOE HQ Common Op. Env.

Requires buying EPEAT-registered electronics.

E.O. 13423 Requires Purchasing EPEAT-Registered Electronics
epeat registration requirements
EPEAT Registration Requirements
  • 51 environmental performance criteria: 23 required and 28 optional.
  • Manufacturers choose tier level for products – Bronze, Silver, and Gold.
  • More than 428 products are currently EPEAT-registered.
e o 13423 requires enabling of energy star features

E.O. 13423

Requires Energy Star® features enabled:

On 100% of computers and monitors; or

To maximum degree, based on mission needs.

Some electronics may not be eligible to comply.


DOE O 450.1

Provides that power management capabilities be enabled on electronics.

E.O. 13423 Requires Enabling of Energy Star® Features
e o 13423 requires policies to extend useful lifetime

E.O. 13423

Extend useful lifetime of electronics to > 4 yrs.

Use EPA guidance to improve operation & maintenance. []

Implement procedures to ensure timely reuse and donation of equipment.


DOE O 450.1

Extend useful lifespan of computers through software upgrades.

DOE HQ Common Op. Env.

Replace cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors only as needed.

E.O. 13423 Requires Policies To Extend Useful Lifetime
e o 13423 requires environmentally sound end of life disposition

E.O. 13423

Requires environmentally sound reuse, donation, sale, or recycle of end-of-life electronics.

Choose qualified recyclers.

Comply with GSA’s Computer’s for Learning Program (E.O. 12999).

Ensure reuse, donation, sale or recycle of leased IT equipment at end of lease.


DOE O 450.1

Recycle post-consumer materials

Recycle end-of-life electronics.

DOE CIO Guidance CS-11

(January 26, 2007)

Follow specified protocols for clearing storage media, memory devices, and hardware.

E.O. 13423 Requires Environmentally Sound End-of-Life Disposition
e o 13423 requires partnership in the fec or implementation of an equivalent program

E.O. 13423

Requires program addressing purchase, operation and maintenance, and end-of-life management for electronics choose either to:

Become FEC partner or

Implement FEC-equivalent program.


Sixteen DOE elements have become FEC partners.

June 2005 Joint DOE Memo from Agency Environmental Executive and Chief Information Officer (IM-1) commits DOE to:

Improve life-cycle management practices of electronics; and

Promote participation by DOE field elements in FEC.

E.O. 13423 Requires Partnership in the FEC or Implementation of an Equivalent Program
