|Title:||Extending the lifetime of mobile devices to reduce their environmental impact : a glimpse on the project LIFESAVING|
|Publisher / Ed. Institution:||BFH-Zentrum Digital Society|
|Subject (DDC):||363: Environmental and security problems|
|Abstract:||Mobile Internet-enabled devices (MIEDs) such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets have become a crucial part of our lives. However, the environmental impact of MIEDs is significant and expected to increase markedly in the years to come due to the growing number of devices sold every year. Their main impacts, be it on climate change or material resource use, arise during the production phase. Using MIEDs longer can, consequently, curb demand for new devices and hence contribute to a significant reduction of the ecological footprint of our digitalised society. Considering that many devices that are replaced are still functional, extending the lifetime of devices seems to be expedient.|
