First R2 Certified Facility in South America
R2 Solutions has announced that Arrow Global Asset Disposition in Sao Paulo, Brazil, has become the first electronics recycler in South America to achieve R2 certification.
“We are extremely pleased with the leadership that Arrow Global Asset Disposition has shown as the first R2 Certified facility in South America,” stated John Lingelbach, Executive Director of R2 Solutions, the non-profit organization that governs the R2 Standard. “As use of personal electronic devices continues to rapidly increase around the world, so does the need for safe and sustainable recycling facilities. The challenge to protect workers and the environment while maximizing the recovery of valuable materials found in end-of-life electronics has never been greater – and Arrow has stepped up to the challenge. Arrow’s newly certified facility in Brazil is a tremendous development for the people of South America and the environment. We congratulate Arrow on this very important achievement.”
