Electronics Watch has joined the Clean Electronics Production Network (CEPN). CEPN is a multi-stakeholder innovation network, with the goal to "move toward zero exposure of workers to toxic chemicals in the electronics manufacturing process." As a member of CEPN, Electronics Watch will help our affiliates work effectively to remove toxic chemicals from their electronics supply chains.
Independent Monitoring for Public Procurement
Today, just six days before the start of the UN Climate Change Conference, COP 26, Electronics Watch releases two films focusing on the mining of nickel, a key mineral for batteries in electric vehicles and renewable energy infrastructure. Produced in collaboration with Pacific Asia Resource Center and Friends of the Earth, Japan, with support from Bread for All, A Cry from Palawan - The Environmental and Social Cost of Energy Transition and What is at Stake Behind the Energy Transition? - The Real Cost of Nickel Mining in the Philippines vividly demonstrate the need for a Just Transition to achieve the climate goals.
The mission of Electronics Watch is to help public sector organisations work together, and collaborate with civil society monitors in production regions, to protect the rights of workers in their electronics supply chains.
