Official Title

The Responsible Recycling (“R2”) Standard for Electronics Recyclers


Extracted Summary


R2:2013 Standard establishes responsible recycling (“R2”) practices for the
recycling of electronics globally. By certifying to this Standard through an accredited third-party
Certification Body, electronics recyclers 1 can help prospective purchasers of their services
(customers) make informed decisions and have increased confidence that used and end-of-life
electronic equipment are managed in an environmentally responsible manner, protective of the
health and safety of workers and the public, and that all data on all media devices is secure until
destroyed. Thus, certification to R2:2013 allows electronics recyclers to highlight their value to
customers, employees, their community and the public.
