Unit 2: Technical Strategy and Planning

Section 2.2: Materials Use

Energy reduction is only part of making a green ICT system. There is also the issue of use of materials and hazardous substances. This the second of three sections in which we look at technical strategies and planning for emerging technology monitoring.

Key Concepts and Terms. It is important to understand the terminology used in business/IS strategy and planning. You need to be able to communicate both within the ICT profession and also within the wider business community.

As you work your way through the assigned readings and the additional readings that you and your colleagues identify, record any terms and concepts that you find particularly interesting in the Student-created Glossary. Others can view and edit the terms you enter, and of course, you can view and edit the terms that others enter. Don’t forget to list and cite any information sources you use in either APA or the IEEE style.

Learning Outcomes

When you have completed this section, you should be able to discuss how the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEATTM) deals with use of materials.
