Responsible Recycling (R2) Standards

Environmentally friendly thinking 

Millions of tonnes of electronic waste are generated around the world every year. Much of this non-biodegradable waste ends up as landfill, leaching toxic chemicals such as lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium into the environment.

Developed under the auspices of SERI, the Responsible Recycling (R2) standard exists to promote the environmentally responsible repair and recycling of electronics. It catalogues an effective way to identify, aggregate, distribute and monitor best waste-management practices, and creates market incentives for facilities that follow prescribed health and safety procedures. ISO 14001 has been used as a guideline in developing the framework of SERI’s R2 standard.

Certification under R2 shows your customers that your company has the knowledge and wherewithal to identify, process and divert or dispose of electronic waste in an environmentally responsible way. Independent, third-party R2 certification demonstrates your company’s willingness to meet the world’s highest electronic repair and recycling standards. In addition, a number of large electronics manufacturers are now mandating that their downstream venders obtain certification to this standard.

In today’s environmentally conscious business environment, corporate social responsibility measures such as this can give your company a competitive edge. Plus, operating under R2 standards can uncover ways for your company to scale back production costs, reduce waste and elevate the quality of your products.
