The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) was happy to donate 10 desktop computers and 5 projectors to the Africa Climate Action Initiative in Toronto. This gives them access to reliable technology while allowing them to apply their resources to what they’re good at and continue their mission to support the climate adaptation and mitigation efforts of African communities.
The Africa Climate Action Initiative (ACAI) works alongside African communities on the front lines of climate change to adapt, mitigate and build resilience while building solidarity between Canadian and African communities tackling climate change.
Their work is grounded on the following pillars:
Support civil society partners through capacity building, technical support, resource mobilization, linkages, representation, and knowledge sharing for climate change projects and programmes
Promote strategic, integrated and multi-stakeholder approaches to climate-smart programmes for the strengthened implementation of national, regional and global frameworks for climate change adaptation and mitigation
Advance education, mobilization and awareness of climate change impacts and solutions in Africa, Canada and globally

The ERA (Electronic Recycling Association), is focused on reducing unnecessary waste and/or environmental impact through effective management of retiring electronic and IT equipment. As a non-profit organization with deep community roots, it is our “reuse” focus and donation activities that set us apart from others in this sector. We are an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Certified Company that offers pickup services, comprehensive data security measures and subsequent reporting. Individuals and organizations alike move through technology hardware for a number of different reasons, and often there is ongoing productive use. The ERA believes that “reuse” where ever possible is the most ecological approach to this growing stream, and an excellent way to compel real community goodwill at the same time. The Electronic Recycling Association has a clear mission of reducing electronic waste through computer recycling, laptop recycling and computer donation services. With depots throughout Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and all of Canada. ERA provides a great way to recycle electronic equipment safely and securely.
