Featured Certification

* Top-to-bottom designed to solve the e-waste problem: e-Stewards Certification provides an end-to-end accountability trail that proves e-waste recycling is performed in a manner consistent with the core objectives of data security, health and worker safety, no export of toxic materials to developing countries, no prison labor and no dumping or incineration. * Independent of industry interest groups: The e-Stewards Initiative is managed by an independent organization committed to solving the e-waste crisis. While the engagement and support of leading recycling companies and industry experts helps ensure that the Standard remains practical and economically viable, the ultimate litmus test for every aspect of the Standard is the environmental and health goals that drive the need to have a standard in the first place. The other major e-recycling standard in the United States is a much looser set of guidelines written to a large extent by the very industry that is at the core of the existing crisis. * Environmental community support: Only one standard has the support of the environmental watchdog community bringing attention to the e-waste issue. Indeed, in the U.S., the development of R2 was so biased in terms of loopholes permitting egregious practices (i.e. exportation of toxic e-waste to developing countries) that the limited NGO groups participating in it’s formation were forced to withdrawal from the process. * Rigorous verification system: Both the certification and accreditation programs were built with strong controls and oversight in order to create the highest level of confidence that a service provider consistently meets the e-Stewards Standard.
