India is one of the largest consumergoods market in the world. However, with the growing consumption of electronics and IT goods in the country, the environmental threat posed by E-waste has touched an alarming level.‘E-waste’ is a collective name for discarded electronics devices that enter the waste stream from various sources that include electronic appliances such as discarded computers, televisions, VCRs, cell phones, batteries etc. In concern with the environment and its healthy living, the government has undertaken many reforms and policies to mitigate the impact of e-waste. For instance, Corporate Responsibility for Environmental Protection (CREP) 2003, Hazardous Wastes (Management and Handling) Rules, 1989 etc. These reforms have brought out several impacts in the industrial sector and have a huge impact in the making of the products and their selling. Our paper portrays the impacts of the Supply Change Management techniques which led to the design of innovative steps and practices undertaken by the industries like reverse logistics, RFID tools etc to reduce the E-waste in the recent past.
