New SERI website to promote quality in R2 certification program
SERI has been working to completely redesign and rebuild the SustainableElectronics.org website. When it launches this summer, the new website will include many new or revamped features. Two new features will enhance the quality of the R2 certification program.
The first is a list of recyclers that do not hold a valid R2 certificate and yet claim R2 certification by fraudulently using the R2 logo or through other means. This enhancement will provide consumers and recyclers additional clarity as to whether certain companies are indeed R2 certified.
The second enhancement will allow viewers of the website to learn which Certification Body issued each recycler’s certificate and which auditor performed the recycler’s audit. The intent is to increase accountability among the CBs and auditors by increasing transparency. SERI recognizes that the integrity of the R2 certification program is the single most important factor in furthering its goal of promoting responsible electronics recycling.
