Responsibility within the mobile phone industry

Product stewardship is about taking responsibility for the things you make throughout their entire life cycles. MobileMuster is a perfect example. It's an initiative that's voluntarily funded and supported by the mobile phone industry, to give Australians a free way of ensuring their old mobiles and accessories are safely, securely and ethically recycled at the end of their useful lives.

In addition to MobileMuster, the mobile phone industry is constantly working to reduce the environmental and human health impacts of their products, across their entire lifecycles. This includes:

  • Improving how efficiently resources are used in the production of mobile phones
  • Ensuring that mobiles collected are recycled to the highest environmental standards
  • Minimising waste in the manufacture, production, use and disposal of mobiles and accessories
  • Reducing risk to human health through better management of product manufacturing and disposal (e.g. ensuring safe work environments )
