Who We Are: e-Stewards

e-Stewards is a global team of individuals, institutions, businesses, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies upholding a safe, ethical, and globally responsible standard for e-waste recycling and refurbishment. We stop the export of illegal hazardous e-waste to developing nations and create a safe, green, and just world through sharing and using the principled and practical standard for electronics recycling and reuse.

The e-Stewards Standard is the product of hundreds of person-hours by multiple industry leaders in the recycling, asset disposition, certifications, health, safety, and the environment sectors.

The e-Stewards initiative defines and promotes responsible electronics reuse and recycling best practices worldwide.
