SAI Global announces the release of the all new training course, e-Stewards® Management System Implementation.
This training workshop is designed for e-stewards and potential e-stewards seeking to understand the requirements of the standard and to access the tools and guidance necessary to support practical and valuable system implementation. Attendees need to have some knowledge of ISO 14001 which is embedded within the e-Steward® Standard and be familiar with OHSAS systems and SA 8000.
The course covers a wide range of topics that help managers to understand why responsible e-waste recycling is an important strategy and how to get an e-stewards management system in place. They will also learn how to set the bar higher by demonstrating commitment to international compliance requirements and corporate sustainability goals for their organization.
In the first part of the session, attendees will discover why e-Stewardship is inevitable. e-Stewardship is a necessary business strategy in order to reduce the export of e-waste and to enable consumers to choose globally responsible e-stewards with systems in place that assure customers that they are operating in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. e-Stewards® Certification will provide the highest level of assurance available to verify that an electronics recycler or asset recovery company meets the world’s most responsible environmental and social justice criteria for electronics recycling.
The second part of the session discovers the structure and the scope of the e-Stewards® standard. The e-Stewards standard for Responsible Recycling and Reuse of electronics Equipment was established by the Basel Action Network (BAN) in partnership with leaders in recycling industry. The purpose is to provide appropriately rigorous, yet practical operational criteria for globally responsible recycling and refurbishing of electronic equipment. The standard builds on ISO 14001-2004 as a platform, and also integrates occupational health and safety, social accountability, media sanitization, export and disposal restrictions and etc. Key milestones involved in establishing e-Stewards® system and achieving certification will be also be discussed.
In the third part of the session, participants will be able to see practicalities of implementing e-Stewards® standard. They will also have a clear view of how to design an e-Stewards® Management System that would add business value to organization and demonstrate corporate responsibility to customers.
