Abstract

This study investigates the realization of Corporate Digital Responsibility (CDR) through effective e-waste management, a critical yet underexplored area in the digital sustainability landscape. Amid growing concerns over e-waste, driven by organizational, technical, and social factors, this research identifies a notable gap: the limited exploration of blockchain's role in realizing CDR in the context of e-waste management. By adopting activity theory as a theoretical lens, this study employs a case study methodology to offer in-depth insights into this complex phenomenon. Findings reveal how blockchain can be strategically utilized in e-waste management, significantly contributing to CDR practices. This research bridges a crucial gap in current literature and paves the way for the broader adoption of blockchain in promoting digital sustainability and responsible technology interactions.
