Judgement day looms this week for a quartet of electronics manufacturers who have been called give evidence to the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee as part of its ongoing inquiry into waste management.
Senior representatives from Sony, Panasonic, Philips and Hewlett Packard will give evidence on Tuesday 29th January on what measures the electronics industry is taking to reduce waste.
The committee began its enquiry last August, and seems to have clearly defined its objectives. The companies will particularly be asked to explain how waste-reduction strategies affect product design, as well as detailing the use of recycled materials in their products.
Its findings will prove interesting, if nothing else providing a progress report on the impact of the RoHS and WEEE Directives.
