Catalysing Innovation for Circular Models in Africa – Turning Battery E-Waste into E-Resources

The Fund’s mission is to promote the application of IEC International Standards and IEC Conformity
Assessment Systems by Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and positively impact the
capacity of IEC Members and Affiliates to sustainably address global environmental, social and
governance (ESG) challenges. This will allow the Fund to help drive the critical need for a coordinated
consensus-driven approach to electrification and avoid the fragmentation that will perpetuate barriers
to the green energy transition.
