The IT asset disposition firm LifeSpan, based in Newton, Mass., has announced that its facilities in Denver; Tampa, Fla.; Omaha, Neb.; and San Diego have achieved e-Stewards certification.

LifeSpan says it chose to pursue e-Stewards certification because customers recognize the importance of environmental stewardship and rely on third-party certifications to assure that their information technology asset disposition (ITAD) vendors meet the highest standards.

The company also holds the R2/RIOS (Responsible Recycling Practices/Recycling Industry Operating Standard), ISO 14001 and NAID (National Association for Information Destruction) AAA certifications.

LifeSpan services large, multilocation, national enterprises, such as financial institutions, retailers, defense contractors and health care companies.

“E-Stewards is a market-driven and a market-leading standard for electronics recycling,” says Dag Adamson, president and founder of LifeSpan. “With the help from the e-Stewards Enterprise program, our customers encouraged us to round out our certification portfolio. We are now among the select few companies in the ITAD industry that has proof of our depth in compliance and sustainability while at the same time, driving the best value for our customers.”
