What our e-waste recycling does differently

• 100% e-waste diverted from landfill
• Awarded the globally recognised R2 certification (plus other environmental
compliance certifications)
• All of our sites across Australia have the R2 certification. This process is underway
with our Auckland site, with the R2 certification planned for early 2022.

Benefits to our customers
• Significantly lowers environmental impact
• Recycled hardware results in financial return
• Environmental compliance helps protect business image

ICT equipment that is not managed responsibly can become e-waste once it is no longer needed. Examples of e-waste that are unnecessarily contributing to Australia’s landfill include computers, laptops, monitors, printers, scanners, mobile phones, multi-function devices, copiers and fax machines. 95% of these items can be recycled, however, in Australia, less than 10% of end of life IT equipment is recycled.

Greenbox is extremely proud to be an Australian leader in the adoption of the rigorous R2
Responsible Recycling Global Standard. The R2 standards specifically provide:

• Unprecedented accountability
• External oversight which is extremely comprehensive
• R2 is designed to protect people, protect the environment, protect data, and preserve resources

R2 wraps a best-practice standard and an independent accountability mechanism around the management and movement of an electronic device from the point of departure from a first users site, through the many layers of the reverse supply chain. This is achieved through rigorous annual third-party audits of R2 certified facilities, and through transparency and accountability throughout the entire reuse/recycling chain of used electronic products.

Greenbox clients benefit from exceptionally high standard of accountability with R2 at our certified Australian premises, with NZ soon to gain this prestigious accreditation soon – watch this space!

At ANZCO we are always looking for ways to minimise our impact on the environment. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do at ANZCO and the Greenbox company proposition of ensuring our e-waste didn’t end up in landfill immediately caught my attention.
