A group of Dutch provinces and environmental services wanted to do something about the sustainability problems associated with mobile phones, such as increasing resource scarcity and the issue of electronic waste in developing countries. The ask was a complete compensation of the use of raw materials.
Royal Schiphol Group has taken a big step towards a circular business. By compensating the raw materials in their mobile phones, they have made their phone usage more circular and sustainable. In addition, their old & used phones will get a responsible new life in an emerging market.
As a leading telecom brand, T-Mobile (Netherlands) wanted to do more than create awareness on e-waste. They help us expand our work in Africa by implementing Closing the Loop's waste-free reuse service. Read here how T-Mobile and its customers are contributing to circular telecom.
