The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and Dell, one of the world's top OEMs, have announced a new effort to identify and develop e-waste management infrastructure in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Dell's Executive Director of Sustainability had this to say about the new effort:
"Enabling recycling infrastructure in developing countries has significant benefits for the environment and local community, and facilitates Dell with the recovery of valuable resources currently being discarded. Together with UNIDO we will work to establish or up-scale facilities to operate environmentally sound management practices that meet international standards for e-waste recycling and further powers the circular economy for IT."
