Eco-design and the indian electronics sector
The Commonwealth Science Council, UK and the Indian Electronics Components Industry Association (ELCINA) is organising a training session on Supply Chain Management and Eco Design for the eletronics industry in New Delhi, India from 12-14 Feb 2000. The need for training on the subject was identified by a recent study on sustainable trade in electronics components in India, conducted by the International Institute for Environment and Development, London and the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, New Delhi.
The electronics industry is characterised by rapid technological change, complex supply chains and high rates of product obsolesence. It is also faced with a number of sustainability constraints (environmental, social, disposal, recycling, reuse), lack of awareness of environmental requirements in export markets, and of the concept of eco-design. The training session will sensitise and train manufacturers and suppliers of components as well as policy makers in India and other Asian countries on: supply chain management, communications, links with environment management systems, innovation and sustainable design.
The training will be conducted in collaboration with Professor Martin Charter from The Centre for Sustainable Design, UK, the Rajiv Gandi Foundation, New Delhi.
