This Family of Standards provides clear and consistent performance criteria for the design of electronic products thereby providing an opportunity to secure market recognition for efforts to reduce the environmental impact of electronic products. This Family of Standards is intended to provide a tool for government, institutional and corporate purchasers. Product manufacturers may also use this tool to earn recognition in the consumer market, recognizing that certain criteria may not be applicable to all types of purchasers. Applicability will be specified in each individual standard. The environmental performance criteria of the IEEE 1680 Family of Standards are intended to define a measure of environmental leadership in: the design and manufacture of electronic products; the delivery of specified services that are associated with the sale of the product; and in associated corporate performance characteristics.
