GreenCo Rating System for E-Waste Recyclers
With the growing need for enhanced electronic waste management in the country, it is necessary to encourage environmentally responsible recycling of e-waste. The role of recyclers is institutional in establishing an efficient e-waste management. However, there is also a need to identify recyclers who will be able to systematically contribute to the implementation of the e-waste management rules. The uncontrolled recycling that continues to prevail in this sector, will have to be controlled, owing to its environmental and health hazards. To deliver these national priorities with rigour and to assist different stakeholders in meeting their aspirations, there needs to be a transparent system that will reflect the true performances of recycling facilities. With a view of fostering this, CII Green Business Centre, along with the technical support from Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA) and financial support from State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), Switzerland and World Resources Forum Association (WRFA), has developed the GreenCo Rating System for E-Waste Recyclers – Pilot Version which aims to catalyze sustainable recycling in the Indian E-Waste recycling industry.
