Key Figures on the e-waste market in Europe
The WEEE Forum's members-only Key Figures portal allows member organisations to benchmark their performance and to provide robust, comparable data to stakeholders.
Says Federico Magalini, co-author of the 2008 United Nations University study on the review of Directive 2002/96/EC on WEEE: “The WEEE Forum’s Key Figures on e-waste are Europe’s most reliable, solid, coherent and timely set of statistics on the market. The Key Figures proved to me a valid source of information, especially as they are validated by key experts and authorities in the field."
Data is updated annually, validated and presented to members in the WEEE Forum's Operations Committee.
In addition to information of marketed and collected EEE, collection rates and achievement of collection targets, members can access member and country profiles that contain specific WEEE management information.
A Working Group oversees the continuous improvement of this tool.
