WorldLoop is an international non-profit committed to offsetting the negative impact of ICT4Dev projects in developing countries by acting as a catalyst and a network, supporting environmentally sound e-waste recycling practices in these regions.
WorldLoop raises awareness about the e-waste, sets up and act as a quality label for recycling centres in developing countries and collaborates with stakeholders to support these facilities to become self-sustaining.
By linking together actors involved in e-waste collection, dismantling, recycling, disposal, transport and logistics, while providing support, best practices and oversight to these facilities WorldLoop turns e-waste into sustainable, human and economic resources.
