Living Systems Are the Keys to Sustainability

Obtaining true sustainability is accomplished by designing and operating your organization according to the principles of living systems.

Certification…Setting the Bar for Responsible Electronics Stewardship

In general, the overall impression seems to be that many organizations are moving forward and pursuing certification for responsible electronics recycling.

Although third-party certification is still relatively new to the electronics recycling industry, recent indicators point to market trends and new legislation as the drivers of this initiative.

Industry leaders have geared up and are rapidly pushing down certification requirements to all their suppliers, as a prerequisite for attaining vendor approval.
This includes you; electronics recyclers (collection and sorting), component processors and any additional downstream vendors that handle focus materials and peripherals.

Being proactive has its benefits, and organizations that participate quickly will secure their market share by carrying out their social and ethical responsibilities. From strictly a business perspective, they will also be demonstrating their keen ability to anticipate both regulatory and market trends wisely, by taking positive action.

In the past, when voluntary certification has emerged in other industries, we’ve seen that the suppliers who readily participate, produce customer confidence and are often rewarded with a preferred vendor status. This is what leads to greater exposure, winning more business and achieving true sustainability.

When making this new investment, most of you are entering unfamiliar territory. You may be overwhelmed by the fact that while learning how to
fully understand the certification process, you must simultaneously continue
to successfully run your business. Costs will be incurred and decisions must be made. Having to sort through and make sense of so much presented material can be quite a task. This is where AccessQMS can greatly support your efforts.
