Clover Imaging Group (CIG) has announced that its Mexicali, Mexico, facility of Clover Environmental Solutions (CES) has achieved the R2:2013 Standard, the premier global environmental, worker health and safety standard for the electronics refurbishing and recycling industry. CES Mexicali is the heart of Clover's cartridge collection operation and processes nearly 3 million units a month.

"Clover is proud to be recognized for our rigorous sustainability initiatives as part of the R2 Standard certification," said Luke Goldberg, executive vice president of global sales and marketing, CIG. "The process took almost exactly a year to complete, and this confirms our team's commitment to reuse and the responsible disposition of end-of-life commodities. It also proves our dedication to the safety of our employees and the overall work environment."

As part of the year-long process conducted through a third-party audit, the Clover team developed and confirmed processes for the security of shipments, enhanced storage of products, and confirmed that partnering transportation companies carry the proper insurance levels and licensing requirements. As part of the certification, Clover will track products through the downstream vendor chain to ensure compliance. In addition, a robust health and safety system under OHSAS 18001 was implemented and certified.
