iNEMI Tech Topic Series: Eco-Design for Circular Electronics Economy

Nokia and Samsung will share how their companies are supporting eco-design of their products to help create a circular economy.
Eco-design principles seek to minimize the environmental impact of products and services over their lifecycle. iNEMI’s Eco-Design for Circular Electronics Economy is a series of interactive webinars featuring experts from leading organizations that are implementing innovative/beyond-compliance eco-design work. Join these webinars to learn about the successful approaches and experiences of these leaders in driving eco-design deployment in their product cycles and supply chains.
Nokia & Samsung Electronics Featured in May 25 Webinar
The first webinar, scheduled for May 25, features Pia Tanskanen, Nokia Corporate Affairs, Head of Environment, and Mark Newton, Head of Corporate Sustainability, Samsung Electronics North America.
Pia will talk about how Nokia has improved use of recycled material content in the company’s products. For example, a recent study showed that 54% of the cast aluminum parts used in Nokia products in 2020 had recycled content in them.
Mark will cover two programs focused on circularity for mobile products at Samsung Electronics North America — Eco-Packaging and Galaxy Upcycling. The Eco-Packaging program is working to remove elements that could stand in the way of customers easily recycling their product packaging after purchase, while Galaxy UpCycling lengthens product life cycles and reduces waste by converting used smartphones into a variety of other electronic devices.
This webinar is open to industry; advance registration is required. Get additional details and the registration link. For additional information, contact Mark Schaffer (
