Arpad Horvath and Michael Toffel of Haas Business School present two case
studies on the environmental implications of wireless technology in the June 1
Environmental Science & Technology. A comparison of the full life cycle
environmental impacts are evaluated for reading news (by way of PDA versus a
traditional newspaper) as well as for long-distance meetings (wireless
teleconferencing versus business travel). Read the
paper online, or read a

The University of California, Berkeley and Applied
Materials are hosting a seminar and discussion session on the Environmental
Value Systems (EnV-S) Analysis, on Tuesday July 23rd, in conjunction with
2002 in San Francisco.
The Environmental Value Systems (EnV-S) Analysis
is an environmental design and decision tool developed by the University
of California, Berkeley and Applied Materials. It is currently being
used to aid semiconductor equipment selection/design and process evaluations,
based on environmental cost of ownership and other environmental and health
metrics, and to support sustainable decision making.
