In October 2009, GoodElectronics together with the Dutch CSR Platform published ‘Reset. Corporate Social responsibility in the global electronics supply chain’. This publication offers an overview of CSR issues that are relevant for the global electronics sector. Several aspects (social, environmental and economic) in different phases of the supply chain mining, manufacturing and disposal) are described from a corporate social responsibility perspective.
This publication categorises the many problems that the sector still faces. Progressive initiatives that are relevant to business, government and civil society are presented, and concrete recommendations are formulated. This publication does not pretend to be exhaustive. The analyses and recommendations put forward derive from diverse civil society sources, including participants to the CSR Platform and the GoodElectronics network.
