Paths to a Circular Economy for Electronics
During the final session of the Emerging Green Conference in September 2015, stakeholders helped create an illustration called Paths to a Circular Economy for Electronics. This illustration, created during the Conference by facilitator Janet Schatzman, incorporates the real-time comments and feedback from everyone who attended the 90-minute Capstone Discussion.
The graphic, which you can download here, reflects the steps Conference attendees felt were necessary to move the electronics industry ever closer to sustainability. Ms. Schatzmann synthesized notes taken during two days of keynotes and breakout sessions with feedback from the audience to construct an illustration of attendees’ collective experience at Emerging Green 2015.
Though the illustration at times seems aspirational, it reflects stakeholders’ vision for the future and outlines the steps attendees seem increasingly empowered and enabled to take. We look forward to working with the global electronics community to navigate this path — and its inevitable twists and turns — together.
