ERI recycled 113.7 million pounds of scrap electronics and resold 4.3 million pounds of used devices in 2020, the company recently disclosed. It’s the first time the processor has released these figures.
The nationwide electronics recycling and ITAD company on Dec. 14 published its 2020 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Data Security report, which included a number of details about ERI and its operations. The document is the privately held company’s first ESG report.
“From working with many of the world’s largest brands, who turn to us to help them achieve their sustainability and cybersecurity/data destruction goals, we know that ESG, the circular economy and hardware data destruction are all massively growing areas that are receiving laser focus across all industries,” John Shegerian, ERI’s chairman and CEO, stated in a press release. “ESG is something ERI has been doing as part of our very DNA, not just in terms of our own goals and performance but for all the companies we work with and help to achieve their own ESG objectives.”
