Creating the Consumer Electronic Industry Sustainability Report

Challenge:

One high visibility client wanted to address environmental sustainability in the consumer electronics industry in a significant way. They engaged Tech Forecasters Inc., a joint client service of Antea Group, in major objective studies – highly visible to consumers, corporations, media, and regulators around the world -- uncovering regulatory impacts and sustainability wins in the electronics industry.

Solution:

The expert team conducted a landmark global industry study on substance-restriction requirements, estimating electronics companies expenditures on and benefits from the European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive.

Results:

By the end of the project, the team researched and created the consumer electronics industry's first global sustainability report, Environmental Sustainability and Innovation in the Consumer Electronics Industry. This report benchmarks the industry's progress toward eco-stewardship, from design and energy efficiency to green manufacturing and clean delivery systems.
