Generating value for business through sustainability
Collaborative action to improve the business efficiency and sustainability of electrical and electronic products throughout their lifecycle.
The Electrical and Electronic Equipment Sustainability Action Plan (esap) seeks to catalyse sector action, share evidence and bring together the many different stakeholders to deliver tangible economic and environmental benefits.
esap, underpinned by WRAP research, focuses on consumer electronics and household appliances: televisions, laptop computers, vacuum cleaners, refrigeration products and washing machines. Better efficiency in these key product groups is likely to deliver the greatest savings.
How you can get involved
esap will build on the work of WRAP’s Electronic Products 'Pathfinder' Group by partnering with a wider range of stakeholders from the sector.
A broad range of organisations and businesses across the sector have already signed up to say that they will ‘Play their part in working with WRAP to develop and implement esap.’

esap will take specific actions, by product category, across five themes:
- Extending product durability through design and customer information
- Minimising product returns
- Understanding and influencing consumer behaviour on product durability and reparability
- Implementing profitable, resilient and resource efficient business models
- Gaining greater value from re-use and recycling
