Life cycle analyses show that the most significant environmental impact from computers and monitors occurs in the production phase. The most important measure for reducing environmental impact from use of computers and monitors is to use the products for long periods of time. To reduce the environmental impact, in particular during the usage phase, you can set high requirements on the energy performance of the product.
