webinar: environmental impact of electronics
September 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
What companies hide: the high carbon impact of making our electronics
From laptops to toasters, every device we buy comes with a hidden environmental cost. Understanding this hidden cost is crucial to reducing our overall impact and how repair can help us do that.
We’ve been on a mission to reveal the environmental impact of the products we use every day. Join Jessika Richter from The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics in Lund, Sweden and James Pickstone from The Restart Project as we share what we learned in this online webinar.
Together we’ll answer questions like:
- how do you measure the carbon footprint of a device like a smartphone?
- how can you find this kind of information?
- why does this matter?
- how can we reduce the impact of our electronics?
There will also be time for questions.
