ICT manufacturers recognize that we have a critical role to play in promoting global sustainability efforts by continuously improving product environmental, energy and performance characteristics of our products. ITI member companies have consistently risen to that challenge. As a result of our members’ abiding dedication to product stewardship and technological innovation, the high-tech and electronics industries continue to achieve significant and sustained  environmental innovation throughout the entire product lifecycle: from environmental design to energy efficiency, beneficial reuse and proper end-of-life management.

As a result of these achievements, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, the Financial Times Sustainability Index, and the Global 100 have consistently recognized numerous ITI members for their concrete environmental and sustainability achievements.  In addition, Newsweek recently issued its 2011 Green Rankings of America’s 500 largest corporations, based on their overall environmental performance, policies, and reputation.  Our members occupy 19 of the top 100 positions in the Global 100 and 11 of the top 20 positions in the United States.

ITI works on behalf of our members to advocate green tech policies in four areas: materials selection (or what goes into the product), product energy efficiency (how we use the product), end of life management (what happens to the product when we are done) and green purchasing (how we identify greener products).
