According to the UN, e-waste is the fastest-growing domestic waste stream in the world, having increased by more than one-fifth in five years. Some 53.6 million tonnes of used electronics were classed as waste globally in 2019 and less than 18% of these items by weight were documented as recycled or reused.
The benefits to be reaped from mitigating e-waste are sizeable, but there are numerous challenges facing businesses at present, including a lack of long-term policy certainty, loopholes in current legislative frameworks and confusing jargon.
Recently, more and more businesses have been faced with the following questions:
- How can we create a circular economy for electronics of all kinds?
- What are the challenges and benefits of doing so?
- And how are policies affecting the e-waste changing?
This free guide answers all these questions and more.
