We are pleased to invite you to our online training “Promoting Circular Economy for electronics through the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) approach”, on 14 and 15 November 2022 starting at 14:00 CET (two afternoon sessions).
The training is organised by UNEP in partnership with WEEE Forum and ERION, under the Global Environment Facility (GEF)-funded project “Circular Economy approaches for the electronics sector in Nigeria”.
The training aims to discuss with policy makers and producers in Africa about how EPR works in electronics, the levers and pre-conditions needed for establishing Producer Responsibility Organisations (PROs), and the support required from the industry to stimulate the development of an EPR scheme in Africa. It will also share best practices and lessons learnt in the operationalisation of the EPR system in electronics in Nigeria under the GEF-funded project.
The training targets policy makers, electronics industry professionals, brand owners, manufacturers, importers, distributors, retailers, and members of electronics industry associations or institutions in Africa. It is also open to other stakeholders who are working in the field of electrical and electronic products and who are curious about the potential of the circular economy approach and the development of a proper e-waste management system.
Participation in the training is free of charge, but registration is required. Click here to register. After the registration, you will receive the platform link a couple of days before the training.

The WEEE Forum a.i.s.b.l. is an international association representing forty six 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.
