Closing the loop buys and responsibly recycles, on behhalf of its customers, end-of-life phones. It has collected over 1.9 million devices thus far. When our customers dispose of a phone, we ensure its second life does not lead to more e-waste in poor countries.
Closing the loop solution is based on three pillars: offer practical, measurable ways for its customers to deliver on circular ambitions; turn chemical waste into income for the poor; increase the quantity and visibility of urban mined metals on the market.
The power of the market is combined with the innovations of circular business.
