To support the transition to a circular economy and prevent e-waste, we include criteria in TCO Certified to prolong the lifetime of the IT product. We also participate in the research project KEEP to achieve a traceability system for electrical and electronic products in a circular system. Your organization can join too!

KEEP (Keep Electrical and Electronic Products in the circular system) is a traceability solution for electronic products aiming to create a world with better products and less e-waste. The project is a collaboration between a wide range of companies eager to change the electronics industry and create a better future. The project involves big players as well as innovative startups. KEEP is financed by the Swedish innovation agency Vinnova.

At the moment there are 14 project partners: Lenovo, Clas Ohlson, Dustin, TCO Development, TechBuddy, Naturskyddsföreningen, Godsinlösen Nordic, Scandi gruppen, El-Kretsen, Stena Recycling, Mirec, Recipo, GS1 Sweden and Chalmers Industriteknik.

The project is now in the second stage out of three. The next step is to develop the concept of a complete traceability system for electrical and electronic products. To achieve this, there is a need for new project members, organizations that can contribute valuable information related to procurement and handling products on a large scale. Participating in the project will help your organization speed up the transition to a circular economy and at the same time be able to influence the final product.

Join the online meeting to learn more

Together with Chalmers Industriteknik, we invite you to join an online meeting where representatives from KEEP will present the project and the benefits of joining. There will also be a Q&A session and a short workshop to get your input on how a system shall be designed to be of value to your organization.
