AV Sustainability Taskforce

greenleaf_50At InfoComm 2010, a sustainability rating system for AV and electronic systems will be announced. It is the product of work done by the Green AV Task Force and the current AV Sustainability Task Force.

In 2009, the InfoComm board of directors authorized the creation of a Green AV Task Force. The mission of the group was to create a body of green AV knowledge and associated best practices. While a lot of good work was performed, the group was unable to meet its mandate because there was/is no generally accepted definition of what a green AV system is, and there is no clear way to measure or compare a green AV installation against a standard nongreen AV system.

As a result, the InfoComm board of directors has decided to de-emphasize the association’s pursuit of LEED innovation points for green AV and instead create its own AV sustainability rating system.
