ONE PLATFORM FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF EWASTE
The term 'eWaste' refers to products that are unwanted, not working, and nearing or at the end of their useful life.
As the world's fastest growing waste stream, improperly discarded ewaste pollutes our air, soil, and water. Abandoned electronics contain precious metals. By some estimates, $62.5 billion-worth of value exists in discarded electronic items worldwide.
ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance reporting standards.
Mandatory reporting of environmental risks will soon become a reality for your organization. You will be expected to report on greenhouse gas emissions from your activities, as well as your direct and indirect supply chain. The activities are broken down in to three "Scopes".
Scope 3 emissions represent purchased goods and services, capital goods, fuel and energy related activities, transportation and distribution, waste generated in operations, business travel, employee commuting, leased assets, processing of sold products, use of sold products, end of life treatment of sold products, franchises, and investments.60 - 80% of your greenhouse gas emissions fall under Scope 3. Most organizations do not report their Scope 3 emissions at all. Of those that do, most limit their Scope 3 reporting to business travel. One reason for the lack of reporting is due to the lack of data, or confusion over how to obtain the data and transform it into meaningful reporting.
MobiCycle is a for profit social enterprise headquartered in the United States.MobiCycle helps organizations adapt to and mitigate the negative impacts due to improperly managed eWaste. Risks include increased greenhouse gas emissionsbiodiversity loss, andsupply chain disruption.
Waste Brokers prioritize $$$MobiCycle prioritizes saving the planet - at a reasonable cost. Recycling Companies lack objectivityAs an independent third party, we bring transparency and accountability to your supply chain. Large Consultancies are too broad in scopeMobiCycle offers a niche focus on digital tech solutions for eWaste management.
MobiCycle's Platform includes dashboards for Consulting, Tech, Games and Marketing.
The complexity of eWaste, along with its impact on climate change, mean it can not simply be managed with ad hoc solutions. A platform approach can understand business processes and manage relevant data. The platform will also introduce applications to help you create the data. As a learning tool, a platform can teach best practices. As a communications tool, the platform will deliver the right messages about your journey to become more sustainable to your external and internal stakeholders.
Our Dashboards reflect your current position on eWaste and guides you to achieve a footprint in line with the targets set by Paris Climate Agreement (2015).
A custom dashboard can track your progress towards the reduction and reuse of your electronics. The dashboard shows how you can reduce waste at each link in your supply chain.
Too often, electronic waste equipment is "dumped" overseas. The recovery of metals will always be better for the planet over manufacturing new products due to the high energy savings.
Despite being the world's fastest growing waste stream, society has not invested in the infrastructure to handle the volume or complexity of our abandoned electronic and electrical devices.
As an organization, you can do your part to reduce the likelihood of your electronic waste ending up in landfills.
Start by asking your suppliers to validate where the waste is going, in real time. This new and more intensive business process means letting go of the idea that audits will suffice.
“We need the businesses in the electronics sector to step up and take charge of the responsibility to build a more circular economy in this sector.
The business-as-usual ‘linear growth’ scenario — a steady increase of electronics innovation, production, and consumption —may bring more affordable products in the short term, but it will not be free from long-term costs including environmental footprints, toxicity, and mountains of short-lived, single-use and disposable electronic products.”
