EPA-COMPUTER INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIP LAUNCHED; ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND HIGH PERFORMANCE EMPHASIZED

EPA-COMPUTER INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIP LAUNCHED; ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND
 HIGH PERFORMANCE EMPHASIZED
 WASHINGTON, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- In cooperation with the Computer and Business Equipment Manufacturers Association (CBEMA), which represents large U.S. high technology companies, the Environmental Protection Agency today launched the "Energy Star Computers Program," a voluntary government-industry partnership effort focused on energy-efficient computers, networks and components. CBEMA members that have signed a procedural Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with EPA will be among those working closely with the agency to develop a second, technically specific MOU that spells out the criteria for participation in the Energy Star program.
 "Computers of today are 10,000 times more energy efficient than their vacuum-tube ancestors of 40 years ago," noted John L. Pickitt, president of CBEMA. "The Energy Star Computer Program will highlight computer makers' successful initiatives, and continuing efforts, to produce energy efficient, high performance equipment."
 CBEMA represents the leading U.S. providers of information technology products and services. Its members had combined 1991 revenue of $285 billion and employ 1.2 million people in the United States.
