One of the major criticisms aimed at the tech industry is the volume of electronic waste. The UN Published a report in 2020 that found the world was producing a 53.6 million metric tonnes of e-waste per year, the equivalent of over a million Boeing 737s.

This special session will be delivered by Oliver Wyman and gfu as they examine what it takes for the Circular Economy to become a real solution to the e-waste problem? They will share an indepth European survey on these findings with expert interviews, including NGO/UN data on this issue.
