What is the Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC)?

The Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC) is a partnership program that encourages federal facilities and agencies to:

  • Purchase greener electronics;
  • Reduce impacts of electronics during use; and
  • Manage used electronics in an environmentally safe way.

Federal facilities participate as "Partners" in the program. The FEC provides Facility Partners with resources and technical assistance for improving electronics management practices, and gives annual recognition to Facility Partners that have achieved specific goals.

The Federal Electronics Challenge is managed by EPA and the Office of Federal Environmental Executive. The Federal Electronics Stewardship Working Group acts as an advisory board for the FEC.
