"Closing the Loop" in ICT

About the Event

With COP26 taking place in Scotland this year, this webinar aims to draw attention to the often overlooked Circular Economy.

Our esteemed panelists will discuss issues related to closing the loop in the ICT sector. That means stopping IT devices from being needlessly sent to landfill.

“Closing the Loop” in ICT will look at the need for re-use over recycling, the process for recovering critical raw materials, and how all of this can be recorded and shared effectively.

Sign up today to make sure you don’t miss out.
