The report shows that sustainable metals management requires more than improving recycling rates of selected materials. We need to change the whole mindset on recycling of metals, moving away from a Material-Centric approach to a Product-Centric approach. Recycling has become increasingly
difficult today and much value is lost due to the growing complexity of products and complex interactions within recycling systems.
