Organizations in Sustainable Development 

Sustainable development is about producing products at no net loss to the environment.  Not only does this make environmental sense; it makes dollars and sense!

Here are some of the dominant organizations in sustainable development today.

Back to the main Sustainable Development Page


The Electronic Industries Association (EIA)  represents the government relations interests of the diversified electronics industry. EIA's Environmental Issues Council maintains an extensive database of resources related to environmental issues affecting the electronics industry. Of particular note is its summary of international and domestic recycling initiatives.


The Electronic Product Recovery and Recycling (EPR2) Roundtable  was formed to raise public awareness about and find innovative ways to promote environmentally and economically sound management of electronic equipment that no longer meets the needs of its original owners. The roundtable is exploring options at the "beginning of life," such as Design for the Environment, that will help eliminate some of the end-of-life issues that now exist. The roundtable members represent a broad range of organizations, including original equipment manufacturers; federal, state, and local government agencies; non-governmental organizations; retailers; and academia.


Industry Council for Electronic Equipment Recycling (ICER)  is a cross-industry association with over 50 members from the U.K. and other European countries, set up to encourage recycling and reuse of end-of-life equipment. ICER aims to find economically and environmentally sound solutions through the collaborative efforts of industry, government, and consumers.


Institute for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits (IPC)  brings together all of the players in the electronic interconnect industry: designers, board manufacturers, assembly companies, suppliers, and original equipment manufacturers to further the competitive excellence and financial success of its members worldwide.


The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)  Electronics & the Environment Committee was established to ensure that environmental considerations are integrated and embedded into electronics products and processes from design and manufacturing to end-of-life. IEEE's annual Business and the Environment conference, held each May, is an important source of information developments in electronics Design for the Environment, life-cycle management and electronics recycling. Conference proceedings are available.


International Association of Electronics Recyclers (IAER)  represents and serves the interests of the electronics recycling industry in the development of effective and efficient infrastructure for managing the life cycles of electronics products.


Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation (MCC)  is a consortium of computer, semiconductor, and electronics manufacturers, as well as users and producers of information technology, that aims to solve problems that no one company can address alone. MCC provides research and development services for its members.


The Multi-Lifecycle Engineering Research Center (MERC).  The Multi-Lifecycle Engineering and Manufacturing Program is a coordinated research and development effort underway by the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Rutgers, Polymer Processing Institute at Stevens, and Princeton in close collaboration with private industry, municipalities and government agencies. Included in this program is a project concerning discarded computers and cathode ray tubes. It is comprehensive in scope, covering product demanufacturing, material re-engineering, component remanufacturingl and next-generation products, as well as product redesign and rapid product realization.


The Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition supports the proposed European Commission Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, which calls for changes in the design of electronic products and for producer take-back and recycling of electronic products at end-of-life. Please see the Clean Computer Campaign


TCO Development (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees)  has an updated international certification program for environmentally and ergonomically preferable information technology equipment.
