Development of native woodlands Incorporating Biodiversity Supported by the
WEEE (eWaste) Industry
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is the fastest growing waste stream in the world. As we become more and more connected through the Internet of Things (IOT) the environmental impact of electronic equipment will continue to grow at an ever faster rate. Every piece of electronic equipment has a cradle to grave carbon footprint.
Recycling of WEEE (eWaste) contributes to this carbon footprint.
By funding the development of native woodlands, weee2tree helps offset this part of the carbon footprint.
Our contributors can also enjoy these recreational woodlands and the wonderful biodiversity created by native trees

Woodlands are a truly beautiful part of the natural environment, they are also amazingly efficient machines, constantly working to make Earth a healthier planet, they improve air and water quality, help reduce global warming, create habitats for plants and animals and wonderful recreation areas for us to enjoy. All this while counteracting the effects of the carbon released from our electronics
Electronic Recycling manage WEEE to the highest environmental standards, surpassing all of the recycling targets set down in the EU WEEE Directive but the recycling process in itself creates carbon emissions, adding to the “cradle to grave” carbon footprint of all the electronic equipment used in our daily lives
weee2tree is an opportunity for the WEEE industry to contribute to the creation of native recreational woodlands and help offset the carbon footprint of the WEEE recycling process.
