E-Waste World Conference & Expo Advisory Board members are helping to steer the conference content by offering specialist guidance based on their specific areas of expertise. Today, we welcome one of the central figures in the global WEEE sector to the Board

E-Waste World Conference & Expo has welcomed Pascal Leroy to its Advisory Board, enhancing further the expertise level of the conference’s steering committee.

A well-known and highly respected figure in the global e-waste sector, Pascal became secretary general of the WEEE Forum in 2007. The WEEE Forum is a European association of 33 electrical and electronic waste collection and recovery systems. Its mission is to provide for a platform for co-operation and exchange of best practices, and in so doing, optimize the effectiveness of the operations of the member organizations, while striving for excellence and continuous improvement in environmental performance.

Pascal has also been the project manager of ‘WEEELABEX’, the four-year project, co-financed by the European Community, that has laid down a harmonized set of standards on collection, logistics and treatment of WEEE, and a set of conformity verification rules. The project came to an end on 31 December 2012.

He previously worked at CECED, the association of household appliance manufacturers in Europe. He joined CECED in 2000 and was in charge of an advocacy program on WEEE. He prepared the ground for the set-up of WEEE producer responsibility organizations in a number of new member states. Before CECED, Pascal worked for Hill and Knowlton, the world’s second-largest public relations and public affairs consultancy. In the second half of the 1990s, he worked in the European Parliament. He studied economics at the University of Antwerpen (Belgium) and obtained a Masters in Advanced European Economic Studies at the College of Europe in Bruges (Belgium).

Additions to the Advisory Board will be announced soon.

E-Waste World Conference & Expo will take place from Thursday 14 November to Friday 15 November at the Kap Europa, Frankfurt Messe, Germany.
