The Global Electronics Council is launching a new EPEAT product category for Health and Wellness Wearable Electronic Devices, including fitness trackers, smartwatches, and the diverse wearables used to remotely monitor patient and employee health.
In this webinar recording, we introduce the new EPEAT category and draft criteria, which cover chemical substances in the product, design for reuse and recycling, responsible end-of-life management, and data privacy. Out draft criteria were based in part on the findings of our State of Sustainability Research for Health and Wellness Wearable Electronic Devices.
It helped to kick off a 60-day public comment period on the draft criteria that begin on 12 January 2022. This webinar also explained the process for submitting public comments.
