How to integrate Life Cycle approaches in the electronics?




Thursday 9th November 2017 from 11am to 12.30am - Commission room C


Internet of Things (IoT), smartphones, electrical appliances and electronic equipments are more and more ubiquitous in our life. Are these technologies designed in a circular way, respecting our environment?
Come discover how Electronics engineers eco-design today’s and tomorrow’s products and have a lifecycle mindset on Electrical and Electronic Equipments.  




PEP Eco Passport® as a competitive advantage

Pierre Morel
Sustainable Development Director, SOMFY, France

After having being quality director of SOMFY for more than 15 years, Pierre MOREL has created the Sustainable Development Direction in 2010. The Carbon accounting realized in 2012 has shown that for reduce significantly its greenhouse gasses emissions, SOMFY should works on the eco design of its products. Pierre Morel has defined and implemented this eco design program called Act for Green. The approached is based on LCA carried out according to PEP Eco Passport® rules. Pierre MOREL is member of the PEP Eco Passport® steering committee.

Mélanie Bordignon
Eco-design Manager, Alstom

melanie bordignonalstom
I was hired in 2009 in the ALSTOM group as ecodesign responsible, after a PhD in material science with RENAULT, in collaboration with Mines Paritech school. These 5 last years, I developed the ecodesign activity in ALSTOM Transport Villeurbanne with, in particular, the definition of LCA methods especially for electronic products, the writing of golden rules to ecodesign this type of product, and the creation and presentation of trainings dedicated to this topic. In January 2014, I contributed to the extension of the ISO 14001 certification scope to include design and product development, in other words, ecodesign was integrated in the certification perimeter. The ecodesign management system was also evaluated according to AFAQ ecodesign method, and the site obtained a maturity level of 3/4 (confirmed).
