Wellesley, MA, October 21, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- LifeSpan Technology Recycling today announced that it has been recognized by the EPA’s National Environmental Performance Track program (“Performance Track”). Performance Track facilities have a strong record of environmental compliance, set three-year goals for continuous improvements in environmental performance beyond their legal requirements, have internal systems in place to manage their environmental impacts, engage in community outreach, and consistently report results.
LifeSpan also received the Gold Leadership Award from the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment – becoming the first recycler in the state to achieve this prestigious designation. The Environmental Leadership Program (“ELP”) offers benefits and incentives to members that voluntarily go beyond compliance with state and federal regulations and are committed to continual environmental improvement. Criteria for the award include the following:
- The recipient must have in place a fully operational, facility-specific Environmental Management System (EMS) with goals.
- The Company must meet the beyond-compliance requirements for the Gold tier
- The recipient must have no serious civil violations for the past three years or criminal violations for the past five years.
“LifeSpan is no stranger to green business practices," said Mary Byrne, the EPA’s Environmental Business Liaison. "A big part of the company's business is finding recycling and reuse options for end-of-life electronics and IT equipment. The company’s participation in the Performance Track program ups the ante with a comprehensive commitment to minimizing resource use and protecting the environment in all aspects of LifeSpan’s operations."
LifeSpan President Dag Adamson stated, “We are honored to have been recognized by both the EPA and the CDPHE. LifeSpan is committed to the highest standards of environmental stewardship in its handling of our customers’ end of life IT assets.”
