The environment is important for EISA, therefore EISA introduced the Green Awards back in 2005.
EISA’s first Green Award went to a conventional, bulky analogue television, but today those heavy carcasses are only available in second hand stores. Flat is now common and although a few years back, there was a serious attempt to shelter Plasma and LCD under the same umbrella; the winner ultimately always came from the LCD corner. Determining the winner is, by the way, not something EISA does by itself.
EISA member-magazines may know a lot about technology and its applications but on environmental issues they generally lack the necessary knowledge to make the right decision. Therefore, on the Norwegian side, the work is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Casper Boks, professor at the University of Science & Technology in Trondheim, on the German side by Dr. ir Jaco Huisman of the United Nations University in Bonn and on the Dutch side by Prof. dr. ir. Jo Geraedts and dr. ir. Renee Wever of the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at Delft University of Technology. Worldwide, these gentlemen are recognized as real specialists in green.
