How We Got Started and Who We Are
The vision for Greeneye Partners began in 2009 with the goal of assisting electronic recyclers with their downstream vendor due diligence requirements for the R2 and e-Stewards standard. It began as an informal brainstorming session with recyclers, auditors and industry professional sitting around a table thinking there has got to be a better way to conduct downstream vendor audits without every company sending auditors around the world. It just didn’t make sense from an economical or environmental standpoint.
Greeneye Partners was launched in 2010 to provide the solution recyclers, manufacturers and end processors were looking for. Greeneye Partners send experienced environmental, health and safety auditors all around the world to audit facilities. We share the cost of the audit between many companies, thus reducing the costs and environmental footprint for all involved.
