What is the WEEE directive?

Once they reach their end of life, electrical products become waste electrical and electronic equipment, or WEEE, that can have an impact on the environment, while having also a high recycling potential.
The WEEE 2012/19/EU directive makes manufacturers and other economic operators (importers, distributors, end users, etc.) responsible for the future of end-of-life equipment.


As part of its voluntary adherence to the United Nations Global Compact and its Corporate Social Responsibility commitments, Socomec is dedicated to minimizing its impact on the environment.
Within the framework of the WEEE 2012/19/EU directive, the Socomec Group has taken steps to implement this directive and anticipate its future evolutions.


What are the benefits of the WEEE directive?

The WEEE Directive is an opportunity to ensure an end of life of electrical installations that respects the environment and complies with regulations.
