IIIEE calls for sustainable action on Circular Electronics Day!
On 24 January is Circular Electronics Day. It is a day that aims to encourage organizations and consumers to take a more responsible approach to the electronic goods they use.
The IIIEE together with several organisations stand behind the initiative: Chalmers Industriteknik, Dustin, European Environmental Bureau, CATAPA, Closing the Loop, iFixit, Inrego, IVL Swedish Environmental Institute, Lenovo, International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University, Recipo, TCO Development, Tradera and Xllnc.
