Although promulgated in Europe, RoHS and WEEE amount to a de facto global environmental standard for the world's electronics industry. Even for those companies that got a running start in complying with these directives, there is still plenty to do, and decisions have to be made. Much of the focus has been on solving technical issues. But what is the manager's role in the transition to a more environmentally clean industry?
