“We know that ESG, the circular economy and hardware data destruction are all massively growing areas that are receiving laser focus across all the industries we work with,” said John Shegerian, ERI’s Chairman/CEO. “ESG is something ERI has been doing as part of our very DNA since the beginning, and we are very proud to be able to display that in the report. This document also serves as a reminder of what a banner year 2021 was for ERI in that so many of our new and existing partners and customers approached us directly to help them achieve their own circular economy, ESG and zero waste, zero emissions, and zero landfill goals. As our ESG report makes plain, we look forward to continuing to make record profits and grow our shareholders’ value – all while making the world a better place.”
