At a State and Local Government Level, CompTIA seeks to reinforce the commitment to reduce the environmental impacts of our products throughout their lifecycle. As the industry moves forward in developing manufacturing techniques for advanced products, there has also been a growing trend to monitor and regulate the effects of these products on the environments that they are both manufactured and sold in.

However, some of these new regulations create significant burdens on manufacturers, affecting the intellectual property, supply chains and overall cost of products provided. CompTIA seeks to maintain a balance between the need for environmentally friendly rules and over-broad regulation.
