The Circular Electronics Roadmap

The Circular Electronics Partnership (CEP) drives a coordinated transition towards an economically viable circular industry. It strives to maximize the value of products, components and materials throughout the full life cycle, using safe and fair labor and depending only on circular resources.

In 2020, the Circular Electronics Partnership (CEP) launched an extensive stakeholder engagement process, mobilising more than 80 experts from 40 companies and the six founding partners. Throughout the year, experts from companies, industry associations and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) have collaborated in six working groups, also referred to as the six CEP Pathways, over a six-month period.

The Circular Electronics Roadmap identifies the barriers, enablers, interventions and asks identified in these collaborative Pathway sessions. In addition, it draws insights from the Action Agenda for circular electronics presented by the Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy (PACE), one of the founding partners of CEP.

The CEP Roadmap is structured around the six Pathways and their objectives to drive progress in key stages of the electronics value chain. Combining the actions defined across the Pathways presents a comprehensive picture of what is needed to drive system transformation towards the vision of a more circular electronics industry.
