The biggest names in tech, consumer goods and waste management working together for a circular economy.

Circular Electronics Partnership

A system transformation for the electronics industry

Our world depends on technology.

It helps people and businesses stay connected, enabling us to do more and more every day. As a society, however, we’re also using more - more devices, more components, more accessories.

We believe that businesses should work together to overcome the barriers to access to a truly circular economy.

A growing challenge.

We are producing 50 million tonnes of e-waste annually

It is estimated there are 100 million+ old devices in homes

80% of e-waste is not collected for recycling with 76% not documented and 4% thrown into household waste

At the current rate we will produce 120 millions tonnes of e-waste annually by 2050
