edie launches new explains guide to creating a circular economy for electronics
Organisations looking to understand the benefits and opportunities of reusing and recycling used electronics can now access a free 'edie Explains' guide breaking down everything they need to know about preventing e-waste.
The nine-page edie Explains: Electronics and the Circular Economy business guide, produced in association with European Recycling Platform (ERP) UK, answers key questions for organisations exploring ways in which to ensure their used electronics and electricals are not landfilled, dumped or burned.
How can businesses 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 downloadable guide answers all these questions and more.
The guide provides best-practice advice, up-to-date facts and stats, case studies from businesses leading the transition to a closed-loop system for electronics and links to in-depth features.
It also features an exclusive, in-depth case study contributed by ERP UK. This feature explores how the organisation is working with HP – one of the world’s largest manufacturers of electronic and electrical equipment – to improve take-back schemes, sustainable sourcing practices and compliance with waste requirements.
“As the quantity of electronic products increases, so does the challenge of responsibly managing their impact at every stage of the life cycle – from sourcing the raw materials to design, manufacture, usage, to reuse and recycling at end of life,” ERP UK’s managing director John Redmayne said.
