1. What does sustainability mean to the CTA?
Sustainability means reducing the environmental impact of our industry and recovering resources that would otherwise become waste. It means being resilient. For the consumer technology industry, sustainability also means helping other industries to reduce their environmental impact, such as consumer technologies that enable remote work instead of the daily commute, which reduces transportation-related greenhouse gases. It also means a commitment to recycling e-waste and advocating for sensible sustainability policies.
