Circular economy and electronics — from theory to practice

How does the circular economy work, and what are the root issues connected to IT products? How should we address them from a circular economy perspective? Join the Circular Electronics Initiative as we discuss the circular economy and electronics — going from theory to practice.

The linear way of producing and consuming products is ruining fragile ecosystems, causing the loss of valuable natural resources. We take virgin natural resources and make products from them which we then discard once we’re done using them — often after a relatively short time. Sometimes the short lifespan is due to planned obsolescence where products break easily and are difficult to repair and upgrade. In a circular economy, resources are handled in a more responsible way. The goal is to extend product lifetime and recirculate all materials without producing any waste. But what does this mean for IT products?

Join this webinar to hear more from the experts on circular, more sustainable practices for IT products, and what you can do to contribute.
