Webinar



We’ve embedded electronics into everything, from our cars to our clothes, but our ability to repair these items has steadily declined. Products that cannot be repaired generate waste, contribute to resource scarcity, and undermine consumer value. Emerging legislation in the EU and US is putting pressure on manufacturers to respect consumers’ right to repair their electronics. In this deep dive into an emerging issue featured in our new publication The Fast Forward, we will explore:

  • The role of the right to repair in reducing resource use and enabling circularity.
  • Opportunities and challenges the right to repair brings for companies across industries from technology to consumer products.
  • Implications for workers and communities in the supply chain
  • Opportunities to further enable repairability, recyclability, and circularity for smart products.

Sustainability Matters webinars are open exclusively to BSR members.
