Abstract
MicroPro Computers has been working since 1999 on the development of green computers. It has to date designed, manufactured and marketed four such models. In doing so it has applied Life Cycle Assessment as an eco-design tool, to select materials and components and guide design decisions. This has usually been externally contracted and funded by European and national supports. This accumulated experience is being used by the LCA to Go Project (FP7) for the development of a simplified Life Cycle Assessment tool for electronics that aims to simply decisions making for SME?s in sustainable eco-design.
