Pascal Leroy became Secretary General of the WEEE Forum in 2007. The WEEE Forum is a European association of 33 electrical and electronic waste collection and recovery systems. Its mission is to provide for a platform for co-operation and exchange of best practices, and in so doing, optimise the effectiveness of the operations of the member organisations, while striving for excellence and continuous improvement in environmental performance.
He has also been the Project Manager of ‘WEEELABEX’, the four-year project, co-financed by the European Community, that has laid down a harmonised set of standards on collection, logistics and treatment of WEEE, and a set of conformity verification rules. The project came to an end on 31 December 2012.
He previously worked at CECED, the association of household appliance manufacturers in Europe. He joined CECED in 2000 and was in charge of an advocacy programme on WEEE. He prepared the ground for the set-up of WEEE producer responsibility organisations in a number of new member states. Before CECED, Pascal Leroy worked for Hill and Knowlton, the world's second largest public relations and public affairs consultancy. In the 2nd half of the 1990s, he worked in the European Parliament. He studied economics at the University of Antwerpen (Belgium) and obtained a Masters in advanced European economic studies at the College of Europe in Bruges (Belgium).
