As the perils of climate change grow increasingly evident, it becomes essential to assess the environmental consequences of manufacturing high-tech electronic appliances on a rapid scale. According to a UN report, the electronic waste generated globally is projected to reach 74 million metric tonnes by 2030. The carbon footprint of electronics is also estimated to account for 14% of total greenhouse gas emissions by 2040. These issues are a close result of exorbitant consumption rates, but a large fraction of the environmental impact can also be mitigated by upgrading the existing production schemes. Value chains must be overhauled to integrate sustainable outcomes that would ensure efficient production cycles while limiting environmental damage.
