Sustainability

The OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association) Working Group Sustainability explores sustainability aspects of organic and printed electronics materials, processes, products and applications.

Mission
The mission of the OE-A Working Group Sustainability is:
To identify and fully understand the sustainability benefits of organic and printed electronics technology, emphasizing its contribution to a sustainable future in an open dialogue with key stakeholders, the markets, regulators and wider society.

Sustainability 
Our comprehension of sustainability is based on the principles of economic success, fairness, respect & responsibility and includes the dimensions of society, ecology & economy. We comprehend sustainable action in terms of the definition of the Brundtland-report1 and the definitions of the German “Rat für Nachhaltige Entwicklung2“. 

1 „Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.“ (Brundtland-report, 1987) 
2 „Sustainable development means to consider ecological aspects equal to social and economic aspects. Therefore, sustainable economy means: For our children and grandchildren, we must leave behind us a sound ecological and economic structure.“ (Rat für Nachhaltige Entwicklung, 2001)
