We stop the export of illegal hazardous e-waste to developing nations and create a safe, green, and just world through sharing and using the principled and practical standard for electronics recycling and reuse.
The R2 (Responsible Recycling) Standard sets forth requirements relating to environmental, health, safety, and security aspects of electronics recycling.
The R2 Certification provides a strict Policy is in place for managing used and end-of-life electronics equipment that is based on a "reuse, recover, dispose" hierarchy of responsible management strategies and covers materials management on site and throughout the Recycling Chain. This also maintains a set plan for complying with the environmental, health, and safety legal requirements relating to its operations, and for assuring it only exports equipment and components containing Focus Materials to countries that legally accept them. Every R2 recycler has been audited by an independent auditor that evaluates each recycler in more than 50 areas of operational and environmental performance.
NAID AAA Certification® verifies secure data destruction compliance with all known data protection laws through scheduled and surprise audits by trained, accredited security professionals, fulfilling customers’ regulatory due diligence obligations.

The ISO 14000 standards provide a guideline or framework for organizations that need to systematize and improve their environmental management efforts. The ISO 14001 standard is the most important standard within the ISO 14000 series. ISO 14001 specifies the requirements of an environmental management system (EMS) for small to large organizations. An EMS is a systemic approach to handling environmental issues within an organization.
ISO 45001 Certification is an international standard which provides a framework to identify, control and decrease the risks associated with health and safety within the workplace. Through implementation of the standard we take our employee’s health and safety as a priority.
