EuP Ecodesign Preparatory Study - Computers and Monitors
Welcome to the EcoComputer website. The aim is to share information with
This preparatory study is linked to the
Ecodesign directive for EuP (energy using products) 2005/32/EC, and is
the fist step in considering whether and which eco-design requirements should
be established for computers and monitors. It will identify and recommend ways
to improve the life-cycle environmental performance of the product in the
design phase. The methodology described by VHK in the methodology report (MEEuP)
will be followed.
The Industrial Research and Development Corporation (IVF) is responsible for
the study, which will be carried out in cooperation with TCO development and
the Swedish Environmental Research Institute Ltd. (IVL). Many experts in
different fields will be co-opted from these organisations. The project group
includes experts on electronics (design and manufacturing), business,
eco-design, life cycle assessment, market trends and technology.
We cannot do the study on our own. We need a lot of contributions from the
stakeholders to get enough valid information to build on. Please contact us
if you think you can contribute!
This website and what is written here, is our work. It is not the opinion
of the Commission.
