India needs extensive e-waste strategy for sustainable reverse supply chain

India needs a comprehensive e-waste legislation to control the informal sector and ensure a sustainable reverse supply chain as it works to meet its ambitious climate ambitions.

The Lions Club International and Primus Partners report, titled "The Growing Impact of E-Waste in India," recommended rewarding producers and businesses for providing training programmes and certifications to participants in the informal sector who take on the duty of fixing, recycling, and reselling electronic products.

It also advised reward programmes to encourage customers to give their recycled e-waste to authorised sellers.

According to the report, home collection services should be made available to consumers to make e-waste collection simple and hassle-free. The government should also develop an electronic upgrading policy that outlines the obligations of manufacturers to accept and efficiently upgrade their products for market donation or resale.

It also emphasised the necessity of developing sustainable infrastructure for managing e-waste, including disposal areas, environmentally friendly transportation across the supply chain, and e-waste storage facilities, among others.

India also needs manufacturing capacity so that it can create durable, high-quality products with guaranteed end-of-life procurement.
