Asociația Environ is a non-governmental and non-profit organization founded in September 2007 by four producers of electrical and electronic appliances in order to comply with the legal obligations imposed by the WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC, regarding the collecting process, treatment, recycling and non-pollutant disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Romania. Today, over 600 producers and importers of electrical equipment have chosen to meet their legal obligations transferring their responsibility to Asociația Environ, representing almost 15% market share from the Romanian EEE market. As a promoter of the circular economy in Romania, Environ aims to contribute to a cleaner environment not only by improving a responsible WEEE management system, but also by implementing projects and campaigns that encourage changing habits of selective collection and adopting a sustainable lifestyle.
As technology is playing an increasingly important role in the lives of Romanians and the market for durable goods is constantly growing, Environ decided to conduct a national study in order to identify the habits of Romanian consumers regarding electrical and electronic equipment at the end of their life cycle.
