Summary: This Supplement aims to provide a series of best practices for implementing the circular economy across the ICT value chain. It will contain best practices of initiatives, policy instruments, circular processes, and other examples for improving the circularity of devices and infrastructures targeting both the public and private sectors. The cases will be selected based on the reported or assessed impacts. Each case will be analysed based on its replicability, scalability, and sustainability impacts from the social, economic, and environmental perspectives. The analysis will be carried out in line with global commitments such as the UN SDGs, and those related to the ICT sector in terms of ITU initiatives such as the Connect-2030 agenda and Recommendations such as the L series, among others. This Supplement will result in a classification of the specific cases and general guidelines, goals, and metrics for the implementation (including design, bootstrap, replication, and evaluation) of scalable circular models in cities, communities, countries, and regions. This Supplement takes into special consideration draft Recommendation ITU-T L.1033 on guidance for institutions of higher learning. It will contribute to the effective life cycle management of e-equipment and e-waste.
