The electrical and electronics industry of Mexico plays a significant role in the country’s export market and the growing economy. Employing around 19% of the labour force, it stands as the second largest exporter of electronic goods to the United States. However, being hit by the 2008 global recession, the Mexican electronics industry encountered many challenges which results in accumulation of e-waste, huge GHG emissions, and lack of efficient waste management systems and work safety. Subsequently, since the export of products demands revision of terms and conditions of purchase, the Mexican Ministry of Labour enacted a law which requires factories to follow the renewed terms and conditions and the environmental norms in order to operate. Hence, the industry has been forced to comply with the internationally certified systems and standards.
