According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple has chosen to withdraw all 39 of its products from the EPEAT Green electronics certification over a spat with the group over the latest Retina Display-equipped generations of the iPad and Macbook Pro.
While EPEAT seems to have no qualms about the materials Apple makes its products from, it does take issue with the construction of the latest devices. EPEAT requires that electronics be easy to disassemble with common tools. The Third Generation iPad and the next generation of Macbook Pro use proprietary screws, displays fused to the glass, and components glued together rather than fastened with screws, making them harder to disassemble for recycling purposes. It should be noted though, Apple Stores will take your retired or broken devices for recycling.
The move to withdraw from EPEAT could have sales ramifications for Apple with government, education, and corporate customers. Many of those institutions, including the U.S. Federal government, have policies that either require EPEAT certified devices or give strong preference to them.
