Video series on eco-design practices for a circular electronics economy

28 February 2022 Multimedia, Videos

The ‘Eco-Design for Circular Electronics Economy’ initiative by iNEMI, IPC and Fraunhofer comprised a series of interactive webinars featuring industry leaders sharing their experiences in implementing innovative/beyond regulatory compliance eco-design work. The goal of this educational series was to capture the best and most innovative practices being used today and to highlight the processes these leaders follow to determine where to focus their eco-design efforts.

In reviewing the presentations from the webinars, the Eco-Design team identified several common approaches, or themes, regarding how the different organisations drive circular economy goals in their business models and products. As a final report, the team produced four videos that summarise these successful approaches:

• The first video provides an introduction and overview to the series: www.dataweek.co.za/*feb22-eco1

• Take action now – All of the organisations featured in the series utilise life cycle assessments to drive decision-making at the product design stage to minimise environmental impact. Taking action now to collect data and perform life cycle assessments was a theme that stood

out in all of the presentations. This video provides examples of how life cycle assessments are used to drive design for circularity: www.dataweek.co.za/*feb22-eco2

• Collaboration – Collaborative, cross-disciplinary discussion is key to achieving eco-design for a circular electronics economy. From working with suppliers and ensuring all teams across an organisation are communicating for a common goal, to working with industry partners and customers to extend the life of products – these are all examples highlighted in the ‘Collaboration’ summary video: www.dataweek.co.za/*feb22-eco3

• Innovation – Innovation can be implemented in product design, in programmes to repurpose and extend a product’s life cycle, in business models and through product repairability/upgradeability to close the circular loop. In this video, presenters show how their organisations are innovating at the business model level, the product level and through services: www.dataweek.co.za/*feb22-eco4
