The Responsible Recycling (R2) standard was developed by a group of recycling stakeholders at the behest of the EPA. Administered by Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI), R2 emphasizes protection of natural resources through pollution prevention, extending the life of electronics as a means to reducing e-waste, and data security and privacy. R2 was established to ensure electronics recyclers are compliant with the EPA’s e-waste regulations.
Established by the Basel Action Network (BAN) in 2009, e-Stewards is an electronics waste recycling standard inspired by the 1989 United Nations Basel Convention banning the exportation of electronic waste to developing countries. E-Stewards emphasizes end-of-life materials handling of e-waste, the prohibition of hazardous electronic waste exportation, and the use of child and prison labor in materials recovery.
