In this whitepaper, developed in partnership with Kingfisher, we identify the gaps in the current mobile ecosystem for both consumers and carriers, examine the impact of device circulation for carriers and the sustainable benefits of extending the life of a device through shorter ownership cycles.

One that goes beyond recycling – to extending the life of devices across multiple consumer generations, drastically reducing environmental impacts, enhancing consumer experience, and maximizing revenue now and into the future.
A new approach to the circular economy for mobile is ready. Are you?
