Under the slogan "Taking Green to the Next Level", the Electronics Goes Green 2012+ brings together differing perspectives, from driving change to being driven, from advancing political goals to scientific moderation of what really constitutes environmental progress.
The Electronics Goes Green 2012+ covers three major areas:
Sustainable Products and Technologies: Best available or leading edge technologies and product solutions that reduce environmental impact through eco-design, energy efficiency and resource management, including recycling.
Governance: Incentives for environment-friendly products and processes, green business models, voluntary agreements, social responsibility, and international issues related to environmental legislation.
System Thinking: Today, electronic products are shifting from single function devices to networked products, generating considerable environmental and economic trade-offs. The improvement of the whole system requires meeting a variety of data monitoring, system modeling and life-cycle management challenges.
