|eForce Compliance is one of the first companies nationwide to be certified to the R2, e-Stewards and ISO 14001 standards!|
|THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT CHOOSING A RECYCLER THAT ADHERES TO STANDARDS WILL ALSO BE COMMITTED TO PROVIDING OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO THEIR CLIENTS.|
The e-Stewards certification program for electronics recyclers is designed to provide market incentives that drive the certification of the entire recycling chain that is managing the toxic materials. In addition, early efforts are underway to develop a program to qualify or certify companies who collect and transport electronics, in order to increase the total volumes of electronics managed in a globally responsible manner. Together, these programs will create a network of responsible collection and processing entities, ensuring businesses and consumers alike that their old technology will not poison vulnerable populations, recycling workers or the global ecosystem.
The e-Stewards Standard was developed by members of the environmental community who are leaders in the recycling and asset recovery businesses and experts in data security, worker protection and certification.
R2 ( Responsible Recycling) certification is a set of standards that helps boost a recyclers reputation based on a commitment to controlling potential environmental impacts and health and safety risks while ensuring high levels of compliance. The R2 certification also helps stakeholders reduce risk to possible penalties and litigation.
Through the R2 certification, eForce Compliance has established deep relationships with regulators and community stakeholders while providing assurance that end-of-life electronic equipment is handled responsibly. eForce is the first Philadelphia R2 certified facility.
ISO 14001 was developed primarily to assist companies in reducing their environmental impact, but in addition to an improvement in environmental standards and performance, organizations can reap a number of economic benefits including higher conformance with legislative and regulatory requirements by utilizing the ISO standard.
