More and more technology companies are being targeted by NGOs and other interest groups on their environmental protection and electronics recycling. The latest was Samsung targeted by the Electronics TakeBack Coalition.

Other companies like Sharp, Toshiba, Visio, and other TV have also been targeted in the recent months.

But where to start?

Here are some resources to start with:
For the US: ElectronicsRecycling.org
For the UK: Waste Online
Wikipedia on eWaste
How to recycle eWaste on eHow.com.

So what does that mean for the Corporate Responsibility representative in the company in practical terms?

  1. Make sure your company has an eWaste strategy
  2. Involve more people in raising the problem of eWaste
  3. Start with your eWaste in your office and set an example. How do you recycle in your department?
  4. Connect with other companies on that topic. Maybe you could get some new ideas and answers to some related topics.
