Sofies’ 10 years – 3/10

17 July 2018

In the last decade solar technology enabled clean and affordable solutions that are revolutionizing the access to energy for more than a billion people living on the planet; energy is not only changing life of individuals but also enabling crucial private sector growth in emerging economies: societal benefits from better education, health, employment opportunities and environment are multi-fold.

Likewise all appliances, off-grid solar products are becoming waste and present the challenges related to batteries and e-waste streams, in addition to the rural context of their distribution.

Sofies is supporting governments to develop take back policies and Industry to adopt cost-effective strategy for collection and recycling of products, specifically in emerging markets.
