World Data Products is excited to announce completion of R2v3 Certification, a leading standard for ethical and environmentally responsible IT Asset Disposition (ITAD). This certification marks a significant milestone in our capability and commitment to promoting sustainable business practices within the technology industry, and expands the array of services we can provide for our customers.
With the rapid pace of technological advancements, the responsible management of electronic waste is more critical than ever before. The R2v3 standard is designed to address this challenge by providing a comprehensive framework that provides for disposal of IT assets while ensuring safe data security practices and recycling methods that emphasize protecting the environment.
A long-established commitment to quality:
For over 35 years, World Data Products has built a business helping companies of all sizes with data centers recover value for their technology assets. Refurbished technology is a great value and keeps IT hardware out of the landfill. Building on our ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, the process to complete the R2v3 Certification included the addition of the ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certifications to promote and maintain a safe and healthy work environment.
“Refurbished technology continues to be a great value and keeps IT hardware out of the landfill. We’re very excited about our new certifications which confirm our ITAD service capabilities for customers and strengthen our commitment to protecting the environment and the workplace.” Neil Vill, CEO World Data Products
How the R2v3/14001/45001 standards create value for our customers:
Data Security: In an era of heightened data privacy concerns, there are many organizations that prefer or require their ITAD partner to be R2v3 certified. The R2v3 Certification requires strong process controls for data sanitization and destruction. Certified organizations adhere to strict data security protocols, ensuring the protection of sensitive information throughout the disposal or resale process.
Sustainability: The R2v3 Certification encompasses the entire lifecycle of IT assets, from procurement and usage to end-of-life disposal. This holistic approach encourages organizations to adopt sustainable practices at every stage, minimizing environmental impact.
Protecting the environment and our workforce: ISO 14001 provides a structured framework for organizations to manage their environmental responsibilities. The ISO 45001 provides the framework for an occupational health and safety management system.
