Project Title & Description
Develop 2 Standards for Preferable Electronics
The International Sustainable Development Foundation will develop two voluntary consensus standards for environmentally preferable electronic products using an ANSI accredited process. Manufacturers of electronics and purchasers seeking to buy greener electronic products will use these standards. The standards will promote a reduction of toxics in products, design for recycling and energy efficiency. An environmental benefits calculator will estimate the benefits resulting from the purchase and use of these products such as energy and toxicity reduction, decreased greenhouse gas emission, decreased hazardous or solid waste and cost savings.
