What is R2 Certification?

SERI is the governing body that issues the ANSI-certified and EPA endorsed R2 Responsible Recycling certification. R2:2013 is the most current version in effect. It represents a global framework to improve the standards for electronics refurbishing and recycling. Accountability, ethical practices, and global responsibility are the cornerstones that make up this certification. In order to get R2 certified, we had to go through a rigorous 11-step process that included:

  • Industry standard best-practices training modules
  • Implementation of transparent accountability practices
  • Understanding roles and responsibilities for employers and employees
  • Obtaining our ISO 14001 certification
  • Skill and competency standards for employees
  • Creation of a documented and compliant R2 recycling management system
  • Mandatory protocol training for employees
  • Ongoing audit monitoring with a goal of constant improvement

Our Environmental Objectives

Our biggest objective is to reduce our carbon footprint and minimize the impact we have on the environment. How do we do this? First, we use the fewest resources whenever possible. Secondly, we work hard to educate our staff and customers about ways our actions impact the environment and how to create effective strategies to counteract those impacts. Thirdly, we actively seek out and adopt technologies that help our company, staff and customers reduce their own individual environmental impacts.

What is ISO 14001:2015?

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has established a global framework for successful Environmental Management Systems (EMS) that protects our environment. ISO 14001:2015 identifies the requirements needed for organizations to manage their assets in a streamlined, environmentally conscious way, while providing companies with critical feedback and data that can be leveraged for continuous improvement over time.

In order to get ISO 14001:2015 certified, we had to:

  • Adopt the ISO 14001:2105 standard EMS
  • Identify non-compliant areas that need to be changed
  • Have our EMS pass inspection by a certified lead auditor
  • Continue to pass routine audits to keep our certification current
