(source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary Next to the nuclear industry, the largest producer of contaminants in the air, land, and water is the electronics industry. Silicon Valley hosts the highest density of Superfund sites anywhere in the nation and leads the country in the number of temporary workers per capita and in workforce gender inequities. E-waste or waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is one of the fastest growing and complex components of the global waste stream and one of the most troublesome. For the EU area the environmental impacts of WEEE were quantified in detail for all WEEE categories, illustrating the most significant aspects from various environmental.

  Tim Mohin, chairman of the electronics industry citizenship coalition, talks about collaborating with competitors to clean up supply chains and improve working conditions. The electronics industry emerged in the 20th century and is today one of the largest global industries. Contemporary society uses a vast array of electronic devices built in automated or semi-automated factories operated by the industry. Products are primarily assembled from metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) transistors and integrated circuits, the latter principally by photolithography and.

The consumer electronics industry is the very embodiment of these aspects of supply chain management and related risks. While some of the supply- and demand-related risks are similar to such industries as the toy industry (Johnson ), the consumer electronics industry faces additional risks due to its vertically integrated supply chains. "Challenging the Chip is certainly the most comprehensive review of the social, health and environmental consequences of the electronics industry to date and provides a critical platform for developing new theoretical and empirical research on the political economy and ecology of the industry. The plethora of topics explored also highlights the.
