Green Product Development – Key for the Survival, Current Challenges

Green Product Development – Key for the Survival, Current Challenges

Abstract

Sustainability is increasingly becoming a corporate and social responsibility of every manufacturer, Government and corporate worldwide,  often driven/ implemented in specific pockets – through energy management, environmental compliance such as emission control(CO2), Lead and other hazardous substance free products, effluent control, waste management and recycling – focusing primarily on the manufacturing and operations efficiencies often driven by either statutory or economic imperatives.

Excerpts from the Paper
Global product-focused environmental regulations are becoming more complex and are changing. Environmental Directives dealing with waste electrical equipment, batteries and packaging are already in force and now include medical equipment in their scope. It is expected, that by 2014 medical equipment will also be included in the scope of EU RoHS II Directive, which restricts the use of substances such as lead in electrical equipment. The EU REACH Regulation is already in force and requires medical device manufacturers to disclose the presence of certain hazardous substances in products and packaging. Other markets are also watching and following the EU example. China has already introduced RoHS-like regulations that impact specific medical devices; U.S. and Canadian authorities are also considering similar regulations in their jurisdiction.
