Who we are

The CEP is a coordination platform for global organizations and businesses that are actively working on creating a circular electronics industry.

CEP Organization in a nutshell

CEP is a partnership between the programmatic areas of our partner organizations that focus on the joint agenda of accelerating the circular transition for electronics. Each partner organization is represented by a Partner Representative. The six Partner Representatives together make up the Partner committee, the core governing body of CEP.

The private sector companies who make up the CEP Member base are at the heart of the activities the partners initiate towards the actions in the Roadmap. The Partner Committee and the Members are supported in coordination and collaboration by the Secretariat.

Together, the Partner Committee, the Members and the Secretariat make up CEP. They collaborate with the wider stakeholder network through Alliance Partnerships.
