The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) released the first industry-wide consumer electronics (CE) environmental sustainability report. Environmental Sustainability and Innovation in the Consumer Electronics Industry analyzes the CE industry’s progress toward greater environmental sustainability. Conducted for CEA by independent research firm Technology Forecasters Inc. (TFI), the study assesses industry progress in adopting sustainable policies, practices and programs and highlights specific environmental accomplishments by leaders in the consumer electronics industry.

The report covers the sustainable practices chain from the internal processes of the CE companies to manufactured end products. The report observes how improved designs have enabled the production of products that require less packaging, contain fewer harmful chemicals and allow for increased usability, recycling, and energy conservation. The report also examines companies’ adoption of lean manufacturing processes, the greening of manufacturing facilities, and improved supply chain practices. Through improved efficiencies and significant resource conservation, these practices have played an integral role in limiting waste.

The full report is available at www.CE.org/green.
