In our smart and technologically-driven world, it’s forecasted that there will be 21 billion IT & Communications Devices in use by 2020. This is an annual growth rate five times faster than the population of the planet. With this massive increase in electronics comes enormous sustainability challenges as consumers constantly upgrade or discard the old for the new. As a result, 80% of devices and over 50 million tons of e-waste are tossed into landfills and incinerators.
Brands are facing two main challenges when it comes to e-waste. The first is managing a complex reverse supply chain and a fragmented web of suppliers. The second is doing so in a manner that is transparent, secures IP and data, and protects the brand’s reputation.
