Electronics & The EU’s Circular Economy

May 26, 2021 Electronics & The EU’s Circular Economy

Webinar Overview

Last year the European Commission issued its Circular Economy Action Plan, which prioritizes electronics and “ICT”, or information and communications technology. Later this year the Commission will publish a “Circular Electronics Initiative” (CEI). In the meantime some in the industry have responded with the Circular Electronics Partnership. 

The Commission has, of course, not been waiting to implement circularity-driven obligations on the electronics industry either.

This webinar covers:

  • The history, drivers and studies that may inform the CEI
  • What manufacturers can do to prepare for the circularization of their products
