Westampton, NJ (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
Data Vista is pleased to announce that it is Responsible Recycling (R2) certified. R2:2013 is the most current recycling standard, comprised of a set of processes recognized by the EPA as a means to promote and ensure environmentally responsible practices for electronics recyclers. Concurrent with the R2 certification, Data Vista was also approved for ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications. Collectively, the certifications address environmental, worker health, safety, and security issues.
The EPA encourages all electronics recyclers to become certified by demonstrating to an accredited, independent third-party auditor that they meet specific standards to safely recycle and manage electronics. Responsible electronics recycling provides these benefits:
- Reducing environmental and human health impacts from improper recycling
- Increasing access to quality reusable and refurbished equipment to those in need
- Reducing energy use and other environmental impacts associated with mining and processing of virgin materials – conserving our limited natural resources
These programs advance best management practices and offer a way to assess the environmental, worker health, and security practices of entities managing used electronics. The certifications utilize strong environmental standards to maximize reuse and recycling to safeguard human and environment health, institute no landfill practices, ensure downstream safe management of materials, and require secure destruction of data on used electronics. Once certified, the R2:2013 certified recycler is held to the particular standard by continual oversight by the independent accredited certifying body. A certification accreditation board accredits certifying bodies and oversees certifying bodies to ensure that they meet specific responsibilities and are competent to audit and provide certification.
