    Description:   EERA, the European Electronics Recyclers Association, is a non-profit organisation that represents the interests of 30 major recycling companies treating waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Europe. The EERA members recycle ± 2.500.000 tonnes of WEEE annually at more than 100 locations in 22 European countries. EERA members are pre-processors and end processors. EERA recyclers treat 1/3 of the total WEEE market. EERA aims for the harmonisation of international and national regulations for WEEE recycling, in order to obtain proper treatment all over Europe. This year’s International E-Waste Day (#ewasteday), taking place on 14 October, will focus on the crucial part each of us plays, as consumers and citizens, in making circularity a reality for e-products. According to the UN, in 2021 each person on the planet will produce on average 7.6 kg of e-waste, meaning that a massive 57.4 million tonnes will be generated worldwide. Only 17.4 per cent of this electronic waste, containing a mixture of harmful substances and precious materials, will be recorded as being properly collected, treated and recycled. Many initiatives are undertaken to tackle this growing concern, but none of them can be fully effective without the active role and correct education of consumers. “Education and awareness are powerful tools for preventing waste and boosting separate collection and quality treatment. If you need to climb a mountain you need the right tools,  International E-Waste Day is the right kind of tool” said Virginijus Sinkevičius, European Commissioner for the Environment in his dedicated message last year. EERA endorses the International E waste day and invites you to have a closer look at the program. Website: www.eera-recyclers.com

    Description: This session will explain why the IT department is not only the most interesting, but also the most appealing and perhaps even the easiest department to start with when adopting circular concepts in your business. Join GeSI and Closing the Loop in this WCEFOnline Side Event webinar as we speak to experts on circular economy for the IT industry. Learn how these experts have turned circular thinking into practice for their organizations - and how their solutions were developed. We will dive into important and urgent questions around Sustainable IT, such as:
    • "What's in it for my organization to engage in responsible consumption of electronics?"
    • “Which solid, proven solutions are out there that can make the IT department 'greener', in a risk-free manner?”
    • "How do mature solutions such as refurbishing, remodelling and waste-compensation allow you to translate company values into your IT policy?’’
    • "How can I implement circularity for IT, today?’’
    Experts from Ingram Micro, Rabobank and TCO Development, will share their hands-on case-studies around circular procurement, use and disposal for IT hardware, after which we will dive deeper into their views with a moderated Q&A.

    Description: Closing the Loop and Fairphone have partnered with other circular innovators, such as the Dutch government, in a project that is likely to become a game-changer for the electronics industry -  proving that scrap batteries from Africa can be used to produce clean materials for the future. In the first-ever shipment of scrap Li-ion batteries from West Africa to Europe, CTL has taken the first step towards proving that these scrap batteries can be a sustainable source for resources. The results of this pilot have been recorded in a whitepaper. To illustrate the project, Fairphone and Closing the Loop also recorded a podcast.

    Description: In support of the 2019 INTERNATIONAL E-WASTE day Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) will publish an educational blogpost on our website about why E-Waste Collection is important. This post will be shared via the SRS social media channels and newsletter in an effort to inform as many people as possible about the message. Our colleagues are requested to share the social media posts within their own social media channels. Furthermore SRS will donate trees for every ton (1000KG) of E-Waste delivered into our recycling sites on 14th of October, 2019. This Sims - “E-Waste for Trees” - program will plant two trees per ton, one tree will be planted in Europe and the second one in Africa. Trees and Recycling E-Waste both contribute to a significant reduction of CO2 emissions. Trees capture CO2 emissions, and using recovered E-Waste materials as raw-material in the production process of new products reduces the usage of energy and CO2 emissions significantly. The activities will take place in: The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Austria, United Arab Emirates, South Africa.
