1680.1 - Standard for Environmental and Social Responsibility Assessment of Computers and Displays

This standard is part of the IEEE 1680 family of standards that provides a clear and consistent set of performance criteria aimed to reduce the environmental impact and improve social responsibility associated with electronic products, and provides an opportunity to secure market recognition for conformant products. This standard is intended to provide a tool for government, institutional, corporate and consumer purchasers. The environmental and social responsibility performance criteria of this standard are intended to define a measure of environmental and social responsibility attributes controlled or influenced by the manufacturer throughout the product life cycle in: the design and manufacture of the product; the delivery of specified services that are associated with the product; and in associated corporate performance characteristics. This standard is an environmental and corporate responsibility leadership standard, defined with the intention that only leading products, i.e., approximately 25 to 35 percent of the market, would be able to qualify to the base or Bronze level, at the date of publication of this standard. As the environmental and social responsibility performance of products that are available in the marketplace improves, the standard will be updated and revised to set a higher performance standard for leadership products.
