‘Global E-waste Systems, Insights for Australia from other developed countries’ calls for “shared responsibility” from all levels of government, industry and consumers’
A new report from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) calls for all stakeholders in the electronic waste (e-waste) system to take greater responsibility, to combat the rising concern around its growth.
The EIU report on Global E-waste Systems was commissioned by Australia and New Zealand Recycling Platform (ANZRP) to better understand how Australia’s e-waste systems compare to the developed markets of Japan, Finland and Germany – with the findings showing a level of sophistication not currently present in Australia.
The research reveals that although Australia has made large strides in the past decade, it’s in its infancy of e-waste recycling, with a long way still to go in developing a long term sustainable system, to catch-up with other developed markets.
