The rise of electronic waste: a global challenge and how A.absolument is making a difference

In 2022, the world produced around 62 million tonnes of e-waste, a figure that continues to increase every year. According to the Global E-Waste Monitor 2024 report, this growing volume poses major challenges in waste management, public health and environmental impact. Unfortunately, only 22.3% of this waste was properly collected and recycled, leaving much of it ending up in landfills or being processed informally, often in unsafe conditions.

E-waste contains valuable materials like gold, copper, and iron, with a total estimated value of $91 billion in 2022. However, lack of proper recycling leads to considerable economic losses and increased environmental risks.

The A.absolument initiative: a step towards a sustainable future

At A.bsolument, we understand the crucial importance of electronic waste management and are committed to providing a sustainable solution. Our brand stands out for manufacturing repairable and upgradeable electronic products, thereby reducing environmental impact and extending the lifespan of devices.

Our flagship product, PRODIGE , is the first repairable and upgradeable speaker on the market. Designed with exceptional modularity, PRODIGE allows its users to easily replace parts and upgrade components without having to purchase an entirely new device. This approach not only reduces e-waste but also encourages a culture of repair and sustainability.

Why repairability and scalability are crucial

The UN report highlights the importance of adopting circular economic models where products are designed to last longer and materials can be reused efficiently. By integrating these principles, A.absolument contributes to reducing the demand for rare raw materials and reducing CO2 emissions linked to the production of new devices.

In addition, by offering repair and upgrade solutions, we make our products more accessible and economical in the long term for our customers, while reducing the environmental burden. This approach aligns with global goals for sustainable e-waste management and demonstrates that it is possible to combine technological innovation and ecological responsibility.

The call to action

The “Global E-Waste Monitor 2024” report calls for increased investment in recycling infrastructure and stricter waste management policies to counter the rapid growth of e-waste. At A.bsolument, we are proud to be part of this transformation by offering products that meet these urgent needs and inspiring other companies to follow our example.

We firmly believe that every little action counts and that, together, we can make a big difference. Adopting repairable and scalable products like those offered by A.absolument is a step towards a more sustainable future that respects our planet.
