The UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) Solving the E-Waste Problem (Step) Initiative recently published its Annual Report 2013/2014. Led by the UNU-IAS Sustainable Cycles (SCYCLE) operating unit based in Bonn, Germany, Step facilitates research, analysis and dialogue to address the global e-waste problem.
In the past year, the Step Initiative was re-branded and re-organized in response to increasing international interest towards its work and expertise regarding waste electrical and electronic equipment. Changes and improvements made to the Initiative aim to ensure quicker and more relevant contributions towards a sustainable solution to the growing environmental and social problems posed by e-waste.
In addition to covering the Initiative’s activities and developments over 2013 and 2014, the Annual Report also calls on others to join the network with details on the Step membership application procedure.
