Organizational Capabilities and E-Waste Management: A Theoretical Review

Sophia Jeptarus Kipkoech | David M. Nzuki [5]


Abstract: Electronic waste is a problem of great magnitude in the modern world. The people in various spheres of life embrace the use of electronic devices to enhance various processes, hence, the obsolescence of the devices lead to the creation of a new waste category called e-Waste. The fast-growing consumption of e-products globally led to the fastest growing household waste. Presently, the world is experiencing unsurpassed industrialization with manufacturing and processing industries on the increase, hi-tech change that is driven by the need to improve effectiveness and efficiency. The growth of the international market for production and consumption of electronic and electrical equipment is increasingly rapid. Consequently, the e-waste has become one of the fastest growing types of waste that is produced in both the developed and developing countries. There are various international efforts to address the problem by attempting to galvanize policies and enforcement efforts that have not been fruitful so far. This paper attempts to increase the understanding of the gap between growth in the information and communication technology sector and the measures to combat the negative environmental issues brought about by increased electronic device usage. The paper examines past research on the e-waste issues and analyzes it to provide useful recommendations.
