When your company becomes an e-Stewards Enterprise, you are joining a growing list of companies, governments, and institutions that have made a simple and powerful statement of leadership:
You are committing to make best efforts to use e-Stewards certified recyclers to safely, ethically, and responsibly recycle your IT assets.
What Your Organization Will Receive
As an e-Stewards Enterprise, you’ll receive the following:
Show that your company, government agency, or institution has made a commitment to doing the right thing with its end-of-life electronics. The commitment is a worthy addition to your organization’s corporate or institutional social and environmental responsibility policy or program.
As an Enterprise, you’ll have access to e-Stewards members and program administrator, Basel Action Network, and other environmental leaders as speakers, policy consultants, and sources of business intelligence.
You will be constantly recognized in e-Stewards’s ongoing international publicity campaign, which highlights the most progressive organizations that have made the right choice to address the world’s fastest growing toxic waste problem.
How to Get Started
The Enterprise program is very easy. e-Stewards Enterprises agree to make best commercially reasonable efforts to use e-Stewards certified recyclers, to place this preference into all their “requests for proposals” (RFPs), and to provide a short annual report (submitted online) on progress made in using e-Stewards recyclers.
e-Stewards Enterprises sign an agreement for mutual use of logos and recognition. Finally, they pay a small annual fee (between $500 USD and $5000 USD) depending on their organization’s size to cover administrative costs and support of new Enterprise-related programming efforts spearheaded by BAN. Local governments are exempt from this fee, and nonprofits receive a discounted rate.
Do the right thing for the environment and the bottom line.
