Feb 21, 2017 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — AUSTIN, TX–(Marketwired – February 21, 2017) –
Known worldwide as “Stewards of the World,” John Paul and Eloise DeJoria, and founders Justin Harvey and Gary Stephens, announce receiving the highest environmental certifications for their latest corporate environmental venture, Renew Logic.
Renew Logic, a leading global electronics asset recovery and recycling company, received the most demanding industry-leading environmental certificates by developing and implementing policies and processes supporting R2 Responsible Recycling certification and RIOS, the Recycling Industry Operating Standard certification.
R2 and RIOS are the premier international environmental, worker health and safety and data security standards for the electronics refurbishing and recycling industry.
Renew Logic’s certification ensures the company’s commitment to business integrity and the R2 Code of Practices guiding quality, transparency and environmental and social responsibility.
“I invested in Renew Logic because it answers a global need for sustainable, responsible reuse of discarded electronics,” said company partner John Paul DeJoria. “The world’s appetite for new and faster devices continues to grow, but that appetite results in a global crisis over what to do with discarded, obsolete electronics.
