The ECOTIC Foundation is a non-profit private organization, whose establishment has been promoted by the main Consumer Electronics companies.
Founded on March 7, 2005, ECOTIC works towards environmental protection and sustainable development through the awareness and training of manufacturers, distributors and users of electrical and electronic devices.
On August 13, 2005, Royal Decree 208/2005 of February 25 came into effect. Its goal is to regulate the collection and recycling of electrical and electronic devices at the end of their lifespan. To comply with the obligations established by the Royal Decree, a great number of manufacturers, importers and distributors of electrical and electronic devices have joined together to protect the environment and promote sustainable development.
The result is the ECOTIC Foundation, an organism that manages the WEEE of its affiliated enterprises through its Integrated Management System (IMS).
Its mission in ECOTIC Foundation is not only to conveniently recycle the wastes that are generated by its affiliates after the use of these devices, but also to do it in the most efficient and economically feasible way, so that the system is environmentally and economically sustainable to guarantee its durability.
