1:10 PM  -  2:10 PM, Thursday, May 26, 2016  |  Executive Boardroom

Join this session to learn about the challenge to electronics brands, manufacturers, and suppliers to proactively reduce and eliminate chemical and physical hazards through the development and adoption of safer alternatives, which promote production that is safe, healthy, environmentally sound, and just. The International Campaign for Responsible Technology (ICRT), the Good Electronics Network and their allies are addressing industry, governments, institutional purchasers and others involved in the life cycle of electronic products from material extraction and processing to product manufacturing, distribution, retail, use, and post-use recycling and disposal to advance this initiative.
