Circularity Toolkit: E-Waste Blueprints

As of 2020, more than 420 million people are served by the off-grid solar sector, with an estimated 84 million live products on the market*. These products bring significant social, economic and environmental benefits to consumers and their communities. Eventually though, the products (or components of) will reach end-of-life and require repair, replacement and disposal.
 
Driven by social responsibility, investor interests, consumer and environmental protection, developing legislation and a desire to mitigate brand risks, the industry is taking action to manage and mitigate the negative impacts of e-waste.
 
Building on the GOGLA E-waste Toolkit, which captured knowledge and best-practice through a series of six modules, these Blueprints now provide OGS companies with practical tools to encourage implementation and improve e-waste management practices across the industry. Wherever possible, we have sought to ensure that the E-Waste Blueprint documents are applicable to a broad cross-section of OGS companies, regardless of company stage, product type or country of operations.
 
This interactive guide provides OGS companies with an overview of the Blueprints and their e-waste implementation journey. Users can navigate through the guide using the tabs on the right hand side and access the Blueprint documents via the relevant links.
