e-Stewards to extend Wisetek’s e-Waste Certification to all International Sites
Wisetek has announced that it will be extending its e-Stewards certification for the company globally.
The prestigious e-waste standard is currently in place at Wisetek’s American sites, and will be extended to all of the company’s international facilities within the next two years. E-steward certification is an accredited, third-party audited certification program for ethically responsible electronics recyclers.
Additional Wisetek facilities which will be committed to the certification standard include those in Dublin and Cork in Ireland, Reading in the UK, and in Amphur Sriracha in Thailand.
Wisetek says they have chosen e-Stewards certification to maintain alignment with their standing goal of providing the most responsible and ethical standard for ITAD services to its many multinational clients. These new global facilities will join Wisetek’s existing US e-Stewards Certified sites in Hyattsville, Maryland; Beltsville, Maryland; Milford, Massachusetts; Sacramento, California, and Austin, Texas.
“Wisetek’s ethics and culture ensures that we do not compromise on environmental and social responsibility, anywhere we do business,” said Sean Sheehan, CEO of Wisetek. “Over the years, e-Stewards has emerged as the industry gold standard consistent with that aim and this new agreement reflects our acknowledgement and honor of that standing.”
In a statement from Jim Puckett, founder of the Basel Action Network which operates the e-Stewards program, “We are very excited to be part of the growth trajectory of a company with the deservedly excellent reputation of Wisetek. We’re gratified that they have done the analysis and concluded that among the various standards and partners out there, e-Stewards is their choice to foster their requirements for ethics and excellence.”
