Drive for circular electronics

The Circular Electronics Partnership (CEP) has been launched, bringing together global companies from the sector to start the first private sector alliance for circular electronics.

The CEP will set a roadmap to a circular economy for electronics by 2030 and work on co-designed solutions to this end.

The CEP founding members include: Cisco, Closing the Loop, Dell Technologies, Glencore, Google, KPMG International, Lanxess, Microsoft, Security Matters, Sims Limited and Vodafone along with several global associations such as the Global Electronics Council (GEC), the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), and the World Economic Forum (WEF).

“Electronics are omnipresent. Far beyond just computers, monitors and phones, electronics are commonly found in everything from clothing to toys. As applications scale, they should be circular in design, production, use and recovery to create a nature, climate and people positive value chain,” says Peter Bakker, president and CEO, World Business Council and Sustainable Development (WBCSD). “The Circular Electronics Partnership embodies this ambition and can serve as the centre of gravity for electronics circularity. WBCSD is proud to host the CEP and we look forward to implementing the Roadmap with our Partners and the biggest companies in electronics.”
