Ecodesign is a concept followed by major players in the electrical and electronics sector for at least a decade, usually being part in the meantime of a broader sustainability strategy. However, the situation is different for small and medium sized enterprises: There are some encouraging business cases from SMEs, but ecodesign is far from being a concept well implemented in SMEs. In July 2005 the European Energy-using Products Directive has been adopted and published. With the expected implementing measures, clearly ecodesign will become a "must" for the electronics industry serving the EU market.
