1680.1 Working Group Public
P1680.1: Standard for Environmental Assessment of Personal Computer Products, Including Notebook Personal Computers,
Desktop Personal Computers, and Personal Computer Displays
SCOPE: Revise the 1680.1-2009 standard. This standard defines environmental performance criteria for personal computer products, including desktop computers, notebook computers, and computer displays. The environmental performance criteria relate to reduction or elimination of environmentally sensitive materials, materials selection, design for end of life, life cycle extension, energy conservation, end-of-life management, corporate performance, and packaging.
PURPOSE: This standard is part of the IEEE 1680 family of standards that provides a clear and consistent set of performance criteria aimed to reduce the environmental impact of electronic products, and provides an opportunity to secure market recognition for conformant products. This standard is intended to provide a tool for government, institutional, corporate and consumer purchasers, though certain criteria may not be applicable to all types of purchasers.
The environmental performance criteria of this standard are intended to define a measure of environmental attributes controlled or influenced by the manufacturer throughout the product life cycle in: the design and manufacture of personal computer products; the delivery of specified services that are associated with the product; and in associated corporate performance characteristics.
This is an environmental leadership standard, defined with the intention that that only leading products, i.e., approximately 25 - 35% of the market, would be able to qualify to the standard at the base or Bronze level, at the date of publication of this standard. As the environmental performance of products that are available in the marketplace improves, the standard will be updated and revised to set a higher performance standard for leadership products
