Syllucid is dedicated to producing fair, sustainable and long-lasting electronic products. We started this company to give consumers responsible alternatives, to show the true cost of electronic products on the planet, and to work towards reforming our industry.
We use our products as magnifying glasses on the electronics industry. By researching their supply chains they show us what challenges the industry is facing, what problems its supply chains cause, and how they can be solved.
We can’t change the industry alone or overnight, but we are steadily putting solutions into practice:
Sustainable & fair materials
We are dedicated to fairly and responsibly sourcing as many materials as possible and creating planet centric supply chains for our products. This means using recycled and fairly sourced minerals and plastics, as well as good working conditions along the entire supply chain.
To make our and your products last as long as possible we're using innovative and durable design techniques to significantly prolong the lifespan of each product. The longer they last, the fewer we have to produce.
Supply chain research and transparency
We're using our products to make problems in electronics supply chains visible. We're using this knowledge to tackle systemic industry issues by creating partnerships with manufacturers, suppliers, customers, peers, NGOs, and governments. We partner up with researchers to find new ways how we can make value chains fairer and more sustainable.
Creating holistically fair, sustainable and transparent supply chains will take a long time. But we think there is no time to waste. The sooner we start to address these problems, the better for all of us and our planet.
That's why we're addressing this challenge head on and are taking big steps forward with each batch we produce.
Fabian is an environmental campaigner, who has worked on fixing climate change and extreme poverty before turning his attention to the environmental and human problems caused by industry practices - especially in electronics.
Fabian is optimistic about the future and pragmatic about how to get there. You will find him wherever there is a good coffee and he is interested in the idea of ‘prosperity without growth’, the ‘circular economy’ and ‘steward ownership’.
Andrew is bringing lessons learnt from the fast paced software world to the slow moving hardware industry. He hopes to engineer the foundations to allow us to understand, take responsibility and finally minimise our impact within electronics.
Founding Syllucid is Andrew's contribution to fight towards improving the world, to provide a tool for us all to use and help reform an industry from within.
