Sims Recycling Solutions To Pursue E-Stewards Certification

Stocks in this article: SMS

Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas, (Sims) the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, is pleased to announce that the company will pursue e-Stewards certification at its 14 North American electronics processing facilities. The company’s facilities currently have ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, and R2 certifications and EPSC RVQP in Canada. With the addition of the e-Stewards certification, Sims will maintain the highest level of certification in the electronics recycling industry. Sims supports the most responsible global recycling practices and is the industry leader in creating safe workplaces for our employees and supporting responsible recycling legislation.

Beginning with the Common Sense Initiative and progressing through the National Electronics Product Stewardship Initiative (NEPSI), R2, and e-Stewards discussions, Sims Recycling Solutions has been, and continues to be, an active participant in all electronic scrap recycling industry collaborations. In addition, Sims Recycling Solutions is also a member of the Coalition for American Electronics Recycling (CAER) steering committee, an industry group supporting the passage of the Responsible Electronics Recycling Act.

Sims has worked in close engagement with the Basel Action Network (BAN), the creators of the e-Stewards standard and certification program, on a number of issues, including global waste trade policy and the improvement of the e-Stewards standard and its management. Sims believes that e-Stewards provides the clearest, most unambiguous and robust approach to domestic electronic scrap processing and applauds the recent announcement by BAN to find a third-party host organization to administer the e-Stewards program.

“As the largest electronics recycler in North America, Sims takes a very considered approach to legislative and market-based initiatives. The addition of the e-Stewards certification to our facilities demonstrates our commitment to meet the highest industry standards with respect to human health and the environment,” stated Steve Skurnac, President, Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas. “Sims is a sustainability leader that will continue to pursue the most promising partnerships with other sustainability leaders in industry, in government, and environmental organizations.”
