Welcome to “The Circular Future” podcast, where we uncover the transformative power of Responsible Electronics Recycling in a post-pandemic world. In this episode, our host Stephanie McLarty, Head of Sustainability at Quantum Lifecycle Partners, engages in a compelling dialogue with industry expert Roger Greive, the R2 Guru at SERI.
In a digital age marked by disparities, the conversation explores the profound impact of the digital divide on access to technology. The pandemic starkly highlighted the reality that not every student has access to essential tools like laptops. Discover how the R2 standard, originally focused on recycling, has evolved to bridge this gap.
Roger shares insights from his involvement in shaping the R2 standard, emphasizing the importance of customization. The R2 standard’s flexibility allows companies to tailor their approach, ensuring fairness and sustainability. From extending warranties to repurposing devices for social good, the podcast delves into innovative practices that go beyond traditional recycling.
Join us in this episode as we explore the essential relationship between technology, our planet, and humanity. Tune in to “The Circular Future” and be part of the conversation shaping a better tomorrow for all.
