Our Taskforce: ReUse
In this Task Force we focus on the development of replicable and sustainable re-use/refurbishment/spare parts development systems in order to minimize environmental, health and safety impacts – especially in industrializing countries.
The goal of Task Force (TF) Reuse is to:
Define globally consistent “re-use” practices, principles, and standards for EEE products from B2B and B2C users that are economically, socially, and environmentally appropriate for:
a) Changing consumer behaviour to get acceptance for re-use and early product take back (avoiding long storage at consumer site);
b) Extending the usage of EEE products and components;
c) Reducing the flow of irresponsible re-use between donor and development countries (“sham-re-use”).
