January 27, 2020
West Chicago, Ill. – Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS), a global leader in IT asset disposition services and cloud recycling, announced that two more subcontractors in South America, GAG Reciclagem De Electronicos (GAG) and DeGraf Limitada (DeGraf), have achieved Responsible Recycling (R2:2013) certification. GAG is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil and DeGraf in Quilicura Santiago, Chile.
As an advocate for the R2:2013 certification, SRS helped educate both subcontractors of the benefits of R2:2013, and offered suggestions for compliance throughout the SRS auditing process.
With R2:2013 certification customers can have confidence that used and end-of-life electronic equipment are appropriately managed in a manner that is,
- Environmentally responsible,
- Protective of the health and safety of workers, and the public, and
- Data secure for all data stored on media devices.
The R2:2013 standards require sites to obtain one or more generally accepted environmental, and health and safety management systems.
GAG and DeGraf are both accredited for the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification programs. These certifications allow these companies to highlight their value to customers, employees, their community, and the public.
