Starter kit: Responsible production and green consumption

Get an overview of the Responsible production and green consumption starter kit from two of the key contributors — Stijn Polfliet, Director, Developer Platform and Ecosystem, New Relic, and Debjani Chatterjee, IBM Developer Advocate. Find tutorials and code patterns from our experts to help you jump-start your own solution for the 2021 Call for Code Global Challenge.

This starter kit explains the issue of consumption and production and how it is inextricably linked to the environment. One of the more pressing challenges in addressing waste and shifting to a more circular economy is the increasing complexity of products. Electronics are getting smaller and more sophisticated, making recovery and reuse of materials challenging. Product designers should consider how to create products with end-of-life in mind, by reducing the number of components, for example. Communities could benefit from developing infrastructure, policies, and systems to support repair, reuse, and recycling.
