Our experts focus on electronics and the environment. The available knowledge and experience is specifically related to electronics recycling, hazardous substances, energy consumption and eco-design. The team members have various international backgrounds connected to engineering, social, environmental and political sciences as well as business experience with complex environmental matters involving different governments, producers, consumers, recyclers and producer responsibility organisations.
