Description

What's it about?

Join Transform Together in Brussels to explore the findings from our report Creating sustainable smartphones: Scaling up best practice to achieve SDG 12 and help identify concrete, collaborative actions attendees can take to help drive sustainable change.

You will hear from the report authors Bioregional and The Finnish Environment Institute, including co-founder of Transform Together Sue Riddlestone OBE (CEO and co-founder of Bioregional). Leading companies, policymakers and civil society organisations will provide insights on the key issues and best practice covering topics including raw materials and production, product life extension, procurement and use, and end-of-life.

Our interactive breakout sessions will focus on discussing practical actions and how the results of the report could be brought to life to accelerate the transformation to more sustainable production and consumption of smartphones.
