Environmental Assessment of Product Concept for Electronic Products


A simple method for environmental assessment of electronic products at the very early stage of product development has been developed. It is based on several previous projects about environmental assessment of electronic products. In addition to the technical and the environmental aspects, marketing aspects are also evaluated. The the method will indicate a number of "hot spots", which form a good foundation for proposing environmentally relevant targets for the product specification and to prioritise. It has been integrated in the tool "A Designer's Guide to Eco-Conscious Design of Electrical & Electronic Equipment" (Eco-design Guide).
