Our Projects

Step takes a life-cycle approach to the global e-waste dilemma looking at the areas policy, redesign, reuse, recycle and capacity building.

For 2017 and 2018, Step members have agreed to focus on the following projects. Each project is co-led by two Step members, usually one representative from industry and one non-industry actor:

  • Partnership models between the informal and the formal sector
  • Visionary Paper – E-waste in 2050/60
  • Establish strategic alliance for sustainable WEEE-management
  • Jobs and e-waste

In addition the following projects will be performed:

  • Step Webinar Series
  • Regional E-waste Monitor: Africa
  • Step White Paper “CRT Recycling”
  • Expansion of E-waste World Map with information on Transboundary Movement of E-waste and used-EEE
