The International Telecommunication Union and the WEEE Forum are jointly organizing an “Internet Waste Dialogue”, in conjunction to the International E-waste Day, which will take place on Monday, 19 October 2020, 15:00 – 16:30 (CEST).
The objective of the webinar is to discuss the opportunities and challenges of end-of-life management of infrastructure equipment that enables connectivity. The webinar will bring together various manufacturing and recycling companies as well as service providers to elaborate on waste management of data centres, 5G and IoT.
The full impact and regulation of materials and components critical to the digital economy is difficult to assess as the infrastructure and end-of-life management are less visible. This is true especially to individual consumers that use personal ICT devices supported by data centres and telecommunication networks. Raising awareness and exchanging knowledge of this complex waste stream will provoke thought and support the transition to a sustainable society and circular economy.
This webinar targets stakeholders involved in the management of business-to-business (B2B) infrastructure WEEE, especially from industry (including ITU and WEEE Forum members), international organisations and academic networks, etc. The webinar will be held under Chatham House Rules, meaning you can reference what was said in the webinar but not attribute it to a specific individual or organisation.
Agenda and registration are available here.
The WEEE Forum a.i.s.b.l. is an international association representing 52 producer responsibility organisations across the globe. Together with our members, we are at the forefront of turning the extended producer responsibility principle into an effective electronic waste management policy approach through our combined knowledge of the technical, business and operational aspects of collection, logistics, de-pollution, processing, preparing for reuse and reporting of e-waste. Our mission is to be the world’s foremost e-waste competence centre excelling in the implementation of the circularity principle.
