E-waste product stewardship framework for New Zealand

Publication date:  August 2015
Publication reference number:  CR 213

In 2014, the Ministry for the Environment commissioned SLR to develop a product stewardship framework for e-waste in New Zealand. SLR undertook stakeholder engagement and consultation, collection and analysis of e-waste data specific to New Zealand, and analysis of product stewardship options for e-waste.

To assess the end-of-life management of e-waste and consider an appropriate product stewardship option, SLR examined whether e-waste is an environmental problem that the market does not address and whether product stewardship is an appropriate approach to effectively manage e-waste.
