EarthEye™ is the product of ten years of development by Basel Action Network (BAN). BAN is a non-governmental organization with over 35 years of international experience, researching, investigating, and advocating for protecting human rights and the environment from the impacts of hazardous wastes. BAN has already conducted the world’s largest e-waste tracking studies that have encompassed the continents of Europe, North America and, on behalf of the United Nations, the Asia-Pacific Region. It is with this background that EarthEye has been created and designed as an integrated, user-friendly, system capable of reliably monitoring the international e-waste industry.
Digital Equity Program
In 2017, e-Stewards® announced a new program to help overcome the digital divide and provide computers and internet access to low-income communities, The e-Stewards Digital Equity program is designed to combine the forces of cities, enterprise companies and e-Stewards Certified Refurbisher/Recycler to help solve the problem of digital disadvantage.
This program, which will be officially launched on January 1, 2018, promotes ethical refurbishment for digital inclusion across North America. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact us now about becoming a partner.
ADVANCE+ is a new e-Stewards initiative focused on providing jobs for individuals with autism and other disabilities while creating bottom line benefits for Certified e-Stewards. We have partnered with longstanding community experts at Blue Star Recyclers to develop this program, and received funding to help offset the cost of training selected e-Stewards. Onsite training by nationally recognized expert James Emmett & Company covers staff training, employee sourcing, and internal/external messaging.
e-Stewards taking part in the ADVANCE+ program will gain a loyal, productive workforce. Pilot programs have shown increases in productivity and decreases in turnover and absenteeism. Companies also gain a new marketing tool and can qualify for tax incentives.
