GEC has released its Purchaser Guide for Circularity to help organizations rapidly address the issue

Circularity is a powerful and immediate sustainable opportunity. Circular electronic products are designed to stay in service longer, be more practical to repair and reuse, and to be easily recyclable once the product lifecycle ends. Innovative business practices to enable circular value chains and responsible end-of-life recycling and recovery systems are also integral to realizing a circular economy.

The guide offers purchasers circular procurement questions to ask their technology suppliers and identifies credible supporting documentation suppliers can offer in response. By offering a common set of questions and outlining common documentation for responses, this guide works to create consistency that organizations can leverage in their sustainability and circularity reporting processes.

This guide is the third in the GEC Purchaser Guide series. Each guide aims to empower public and private sector purchasing decisions on emerging and forward-thinking sustainability issues. All guides were developed over multiple stages of research and working group discussions, with additional stakeholder input.
