Abstract

Electronics firms are subject to a proliferation of international environmental policies and standards that go beyond traditional concerns about manufacturing process wastes and releases to impact corporate management practices, product design and marketability, and post-consumer product disposal. Their suppliers and customers are increasingly sensitive to environmental issues such as energy efficiency, material use (e.g., recycled content, ozone depleting substances concerns), and environmentally-sound product disposal and recycling, motivating electronics firms to manufacture and supply appropriate products and services.
