The WEEE Forum presented at the recent Make it Work & IMPEL conference in Rome. IMPEL is the Network for the Implementation and Enforcement of Environmental Law and at the conference launched its comprehensive guide for assisting regulators in enabling innovations for the circular economy titled: ‘Making the Circular Economy Work‘.
During the proceedings, James Horne, Project Manager for the WEEE Forum, presented views from electronics manufacturers and consumers, and WEEE handlers on developing the circular economy. These views had been collected through the C-SERVEES project and were the interim results of a survey it had issued. During the presentation it was noted that the leasing of products had not come out as strongly in the survey responses as designing for ease of recycling and that the project faced some challenges in convincing the sector of the merits of the leasing model, one of the facets of the circular economy it will be looking at.
The full results of the survey are currently being analysed and will be released at the end of June.
The WEEE Forum a.i.s.b.l. is an international association speaking for 36 not-for-profit e-waste producer responsibility organisations (PROs). Our mission is to help the PROs succeed operationally, take back and report e-waste efficiently and be known as members of the world’s foremost e-waste competence centre and as promoters of a circular economy. We engage in the general debate on e-waste policy matters, in Europe and globally.
