Event details

Flex has created one of the most complete industrial ecosystems for Circular Economy in Brazil. Its pioneering circular manufacturing processes are making the information technology industry greener and more sustainable by using recycled material from electronic waste to manufacture new products in the same industrial complex. Sinctronics has been changing the production process from the end to the (re)start. New electronics design is optimized by experiences gathered from recycling, repairing and manufacturing operations. We continually invest in our manufacturing, design, sourcing,reverse logistics, repair, refurbishment, recycling and operations to offer customers end-to-end visibility throughout their products’ life-cycles to maximize the value of materials and components and to minimize environmental impact.

This masterclass series on Circular Economy is a collaboration between the University of York Management School and the Local Enterprise Partnership.
