How to improve the circularity of smart meters?

The Fair Meter Initiative: Circularity Innovations in Smart Meters
White Paper Wed 04 Apr 2018

Activities devoted to creating a sustainable future take numerous forms all around the globe and within all industries. The energy and electronics industries are also attempting to solve the critical challenges of energy consumption, material utilization, e-waste, suppliers’ sourcing and labor conditions. The Fair Meter Initiative introduced in the Netherlands, supports this goal by creating a framework with standards describing socially responsible work practices in addition to researching, developing and producing a fair smart meter.

As a vendor for smart energy solutions, the major contribution of Landis+Gyr towards a more sustainable world originates from the technologies and solutions provided. Smart meters enable considerable energy efficiency gains and the integration of renewable resources from decentralized generation into the energy network. This in turn, makes it possible for utility organizations and end-users to substantially reduce their CO₂ emissions.

Landis+Gyr has been continuously committed to strengthening its corporate social responsibility, with customers and partners as well as internally and throughout society. For decades, the company has undertaken major efforts to meet the highest standards in environmental awareness as well as in business ethics concerning all of its corporate activities and along the entire value chain. With its commitment to the Fair Meter Initiative, Landis+Gyr even further focuses on how its smart energy technology is being produced.
