Opportunities for Circular Economy in the IT and Remanufacturing Sector

@ Zoom Online None

17th June, 2021 09:30-11:00 Event
As a result of the industry’s linear model of take, make and waste, E-waste is seen as one of the fastest growing waste streams globally. Circular Economy in the IT and Remanufacturing sector offers real opportunities for businesses including changing the way products are designed, products are sold and the development of business models to rental models. The durability of IT equipment and products need to become more attractive value both to businesses and consumers.

Join us at this interactive webinar, in association with Scottish Institute of Remanufacturing to discover the opportunities for circular economy in this sector and hear from experts Ricardo who will provide an overview of the circular economy and the benefits it can bring.

We’ll hear from Edinburgh Remakery, a company who remanufacture and repair IT equipment and Illuminate, an organisation that has embraced the circular economy by remanufacturing their IT equipment by partnering with Edinburgh Remakery. We will also hear from Reath, a company who have developed an innovative ‘digital passport’ for companies wanting to embrace the circular economy.

This video webinar will be delivered via Zoom. Once registered you’ll be send joining instructions along with a delegate list for networking purposes.
