Full Description


This standard defines environmental performance criteria for personal computer products, including desktop computers, notebook computers, slate/tablet, small scale servers, signage displays and computer monitors. 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.


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, tablets/slates, displays and signage displays; 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.


Revision Standard - Superseded. A clear and consistent set of environmental and social responsibility performance criteria for the design of computers (including notebook computers, desktop computers, integrated desktop computers, portable all-in-one computers, slates/tablets, small-scale servers, thin clients and workstations) and displays (including monitors and signage displays) is established, providing an opportunity for manufacturers to secure market recognition for their efforts. This standard is also intended to provide a tool for government, institutional, corporate, and consumer purchasers to identify products that demonstrate environmental and social responsibility leadership. This standard is intended to be updated and revised on a periodic basis 8 to continue to set a higher performance standard for leadership products.
