The Eco-Patent Commons



The Eco-Patent Commons, launched in January 2008 by IBM, Nokia, Pitney Bowes and Sony in partnership with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), has been founded on the commitment that anyone who wants to bring environmental benefits to market can use these patents to protect the environment and enable collaboration between businesses that foster new innovations.

The objectives of the Eco-Patent Commons are:

  • To provide an avenue by which innovations and solutions may be easily shared to accelerate and facilitate implementation to protect the environment and perhaps lead to further innovation;
  • To promote and encourage cooperation and collaboration between businesses that pledge patents and potential users to foster further joint innovations with the advancement and development of solutions that benefit the environment.

Since the launch of the Eco-Patent Commons (EPC), more than one hundred eco-friendly patents have been pledged by thirteen companies representing the variety of industries from arond the world: Bosch, Dow, DuPont, Fuji-Xerox, Hitachi, HP, IBM, Nokia, Pitney Bowes, Ricoh, Sony, Taisei and Xerox (download the EPC all pledged patents).
