Abstract

The paper aims to argue that endproducers in the consumer electronics industry can and have to play a role of chain director/ coordinator, that is to use their dominant position in the industry in order to stimulate the adjustment between environmentally conscious product design and waste minimization by recycling. Recent developments in the Netherlands indicate that the consumer electronics industry is already moving in this direction. From the perspective of life cycle management the paper will try to connect industrial technology development in materials use and product design of televisions and changes in the structure of the consumer electronics industry.
