Bootstraping circular economy ecosystems
In a circular and collaborative economy ecosystem people and organizations improve and exchange electronic devices to avoid premature recycling. The coalition of members and partners exchange know-how, build connections and bring together the skills and training to help sustain and grow federated and autonomous ecosystems that optimize refurbishment, ensure quality of second hand electronics products and bring management in the reverse supply chain to incentivitize reused devices are ultimately recycled and impact accountable. We coordinate and promote the creation of local circuits where several entities intercooperate under different roles to capture, refurbish and redistribute devices with a quality certificate to, among others, citizens affected by digital inequality.
Accredits circularity of members and federated ecosystems
Circular consumption is based on using resources to the maximum extent possible, ensuring that they are ultimately recycled, but never before or prematurely, but only when no one else can be used or reused. Business disposing digital devices choose members with accountable reusability and recycling performance. The challenge is to provide resources for consumers, members and federated platforms to self-assess, self-certify and share this data with a data-commons for circularity. eReuse accredits circular economy entities that trace devices throughout their useful life and account for the sustainability impact generated. Together we want to achieve and measure the three impacts of a circular economy: economic, environmental and social, advancing towards the objectives SDG 16, 13, 12, 15, 4 and 10.
Coordinate open-source resources roadmap for reusing electronics
Our members and partners develops and share open-source resources such as refurbishment tools, inventory management, product passport traceability systems, self-accreditation mechanisms for quality and circularity standards, good practices and case studies. Together we build a new mindset and open-source tech to make reuse/recycling tech industry more durable, reusable, repairable and impact accountable. The challenge in this activity is to prioritize which resources are key to the community and ensure they are open-source and based on open standards.
