Environmental Assessment


Madeleine Cléroux and Aury Hathout, from Enviropass, published an article on the August 2020 edition of the EP&T Magazine, page 34, entitled: ‘Going Green as we reboot the economy‘. 

Green Electronics in an Economic Crisis

The published article addresses the issue of designing sustainable electronics in the context of an economic crisis. Various initiatives, in Europe, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada, are being developed and the need to reboot the economy may be an opportunity for environmental innovations.

Recent advancements described in the article include:

  • EU RoHS with 10 and maybe 12 restricted substances
  • EU REACH with 209 SVHC
  • The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), with the so-called Russia RoHS
  • The United Arab Emirates (UAE) RoHS
  • New eco-design ErP requirements in various everyday products like power supplies, electronic displays, and electric motors
  • Canada, along with Finland and the Netherlands, leading discussions on concrete actions for a circular economy. By seeking better recyclability and energy efficiency, a circular economy in the electronic industry can have a positive impact in the context of climate change.
