Why a FAIR Meter?

E-Waste

Typically, electronic products have an extremely short life cycle. Predictions show that in 2017 there will be 65, 4 million tons of E-waste per year. For comparison, in 2012 the number was 48, 9 million tons/year.

Conflict minerals

Around 80 % of conflict minerals like gold, tantalum and tungsten are produced in the Democratic Republic of Congo or neighouring countries raged by war. These conflicts are financed with profits from the sales of these minerals.

Material scarcity

Use of rare materials is very common in electronics. The European Commission has put together a list of 20 materials that are of great importance to humanity and are becoming increasingly scarce. It is expected that even more materials will be added to the list very soon.

Labour conditions

Globalisation has opened up many opportunities but unfortunately also put a certain percentage of the population in situations where their basic rights are being compromised. Child labour, unsuitable working conditions, unfair pay … affect a person’s dignity.

Energy use

Every production process involves the use of several resources. Our needs are growing and the industry is rushing to fulfil them. By doing so, pollution is becoming a worldwide problem – air, soil and water resources are compromised.
