  • Abstract: One of the buzzwords that we hear everywhere these days is sustainability and how important it is to have sustainable development in every sphere of life so that we can leave a promising future to our coming generations. Looking at the criticality of the situation, the United Nations and all its member countries have framed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030. Although the rapid technological advancements that are taking place all around the world make life easier and more comfortable, there are also numerous issues associated with these developments which are dangerously threatening the very environment in which we are living. One such problem is the growing e-waste that is being generated by the rapid discard of the electronic equipment. In this paper, we look at how e-waste management can be done to help achieve some of the goals of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030.
