Abstract: Society's expectations of the electronics industry are changing and expanding as electronics products become more pervasive in our lives. The electronics industry is starting to become more proactive as new demands on environmental, energy use, health and safety and other considerations come to the fore. Meeting these needs is not easy with a decentralized supply chain and differing requirements in different localities.

This paper outlines some of the emerging issues and suggests ways companies can plan their products and processes to stay ahead of government- or shareholder- mandated requirements.

Key Words: 

sustainable, electronics, proactive
