Circular solutions help us tackle many of today’s sustainability issues, such as climate change, the depletion of scarce, natural resources, and the destruction of natural habitats. A shortcoming in today’s circularity agenda, however, is that it lacks a focus on social issues.

This is unfortunate from a human perspective, but it also reduces our chances of succeeding with the circular transition. In fact, human and worker rights can be used as leverage to accelerate the pace of change. By stopping the exploitation of people in the IT product supply chain, we can more quickly move toward a production and consumption of IT products that is truly sustainable.
