Redemtech, a leading IT Asset Disposition firm, is the first company to achieve e-Stewards Electronic Recycling Certification in Canada for its Guelph, Ontario, TCM Centre.
E-Stewards is the globally accredited, third-party audited program developed by the Basel Action Network (BAN). Redemtech says they chose to pursue e-Stewards certification because it is the only e-waste recycling standard that assures customers that no e-waste will be exported to developing countries, as well as zero use of prison labour, landfills or incinerators for toxic materials.
“As Canada’s first e-Stewards Certified recycler, we are uniquely qualified to meet the demands of government agencies and companies in Canada for e-waste disposition practices that meet the highest standards for protecting the environment and ensuring corporate social responsibility,” said Kuljit Parmar, President, Redemtech Canada. “Our deep understanding of the Canadian marketplace and regulatory environment enables us to eliminate risk from the recycling process and deliver a solution that exceeds customer expectations.”
Redemtech’s operations in the U.S. and UK are also e-Stewards certified, with the UK facility named as the first certified recycler in Europe in September, 2010. Redemtech Canada’s Ontario TCM Centre is also ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001 certified, while the company’s British Columbia facility is in the process of completing these certifications as well as e-Stewards status.
“These certifications demonstrate our commitment to serving large enterprises as a global partner that can deliver a consistent offering across borders, languages and industries that surpasses customer expectations and delivers on world-class standards of practice,” said Robert Houghton, president of Redemtech.
