Overview of the Electronics & the Environment Committee


The E&E Committee started work in 1992, and was elected a formal committee of the IEEE Technical Activities Board in 1994. In that time, it has (among others) held five international symposia, helped to formulate IEEE Policy Statement 9.21 - Environment, Health and Safety (which articulates IEEE's commitment to integrating environmental objectives and considerations into all electrical and electronics engineering activities, worldwide), and sponsored a research and development workshop which focused on current research on environmentally conscious products and materials for electronics.

The Committee approved and issued the White Paper on Sustainable Development and Industrial Ecology.
