Description: Via a blog post, we will present the newly launched partnership of Vodafone with Closing the Loop (circular innovator). The leading mobile operator will work with Closing the Loop to scale Waste Compensation, a service introduced by Closing the Loop back in 2016.

For every new phone sold by Vodafone to its customers in Germany, Closing the Loop will collect an end-of-life device in a country that lacks formal recycling capacity. At least 1 million of devices will be compensated - and thus will also be collected – each year, as of June 1st 2022. This ‘one for one’ approach means that every person that buys a phone from Vodafone Germany will be made aware of their possibility to get started on making their device ‘greener’. It also means that jobs and income are created in countries such as Ghana, where people get paid to safely collect broken phones.
