Welcome to El-Kretsen’s Sustainability Library! On this website, we have compiled facts and statistics that relate to our collection of WEEE and batteries. You will also find articles discussing different aspects of sustainability and development. This is, in short, a forum for issues that relate to our environment – from a personal, local perspective to the larger global perspective.
The winners of this year’s WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award have been named
2023’s theme was “Fighting Disinformation”, specifically in relation to the revolutionary digitalisation of our time. The WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award wants to draw attention to the measures that are implemented to prevent misinformation, improve democratic discussion, and inspire the effort to reach UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
International E-Waste Day 2023
In this year’s theme day, we pay attention to “invisible electronics”. In order to meet the global sustainability goals and contribute to a green transition, we all need to get better at learning what electronics are; what they contain; how the material is produced; and how it should be recycled or reused. In preparation för IEWD, WEEE Forum and PRO:s produce information material that companies and private individuals can use freely in their own channels. Join in and spread the word to raise awareness about electrical waste recycling!
El-Kretsen and the Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the UN member states agreed to create Agenda 2030 and a set of global sustainability goals – a universal agenda for sustainable development. Within these goals, there are seven specific targets that El-Kretsen regards as particularly important as they affect our organisation, or are affected by us, and also happen to be open to our efforts to create change.
