Did you know that according to the UN’s Global E-waste Monitor a record of 53.6 million metric tonnes (Mt) of electronic waste was generated worldwide in 2019, up 21% in just five years? It is estimated that by 2030 this number will reach 74 Mt! Only 17.4 % of 2019’s e-waste was collected and recycled.
There are several good initiatives to constantly remind and inspire us to make more sustainable choices in our lives that affect the environment. The third International E-Waste Day is one of them. The day is used to raise awareness and encourage consumers to correctly dispose of e-waste throughout the world.
The European Commission has also set out plans for “Right to repair” rules for electronic devices. With “Right to repair” the aim is to offer more repairs and ways to reuse existing goods, rather than encouraging consumers to buy new devices.
Piceasoft provides solutions to extend the lifetime value of mobile devices. One of the best ways to reduce mobile device-related waste is to use the devices longer. By extending the life span of products, the need for new production, the amount of manufacturing waste and transportation can be reduced.

With these solutions, we enable businesses to provide services to consumers to extend the lifecycle of their mobile devices and to get the most value out of them.
