Samsung partners BAN to enhance e-Waste tracking - NaijaAgroNet

Samsung Electronics has partnered Basel Action Network (BAN) to enhance electronic waste (eWaste) tracking across the globe, reports NaijaAgroNet.

Since 2008, NaijaAgroNet gathered that Samsung has been a strong supporter of recycling by providing convenient and responsible takeback options for consumer electronics globally.

Also in a new initiative Samsung said its partnering Basel Action Network (BAN), by adopting BAN’s EarthEye service, which is a Global Positioning System (GPS)-based tracking system for electronic waste.

The Samsung’s Director of Regulatory and Environmental Affairs, Mr Mark Newton affirmed this development to NaijaAgroNet in a press statement.

“We are adopting BAN’s EarthEye service – a global GPS based tracking system for electronic waste,” he declared, stressing that Samsung not only aims to be a leader in product innovation but also in using innovative technologies to keep our supply and disposition chains accountable,” he said.

In addition, he said that for this reason, “Samsung will add EarthEye as part of our arsenal to maintain the most rigorous due diligence and standards for responsible recycling.”

NaijaAgroNet further reports, that Samsung promotes the responsible and convenient recycling of e-waste and supports requirements that would ban the export of unprocessed e-waste to developing countries, consistent with the e-Stewards Certification Standard and Samsung policy.

“Products and parts that cannot be refurbished are processed into raw material commodities, in such a way that material can be used again for production of a variety of new products,” he said.

This, Executive Director at BAN, Mr. Jim Puckett said they were excited with this latest development.

“We are very excited to share this link,” he said.
