When talking about sustainability, device circularity is about reusing and recycling. We should recover value before electronics become e-waste. There are two main ways to extend the life of a product: 

  • Repair it so that the primary owner can continue using the product. 

  • Sending devices to the manufacturer or a refurbisher to get them resold. 

Repair and reuse are equally essential for the circular economy. Since most CO2-eq emissions are produced upon initial manufacturing, a second-life device will reduce the burden on our planet. Refurbishing and after-sales channels mean fewer greenhouse gas emissions and less waste.
