Workshop for Canadian E-refurbishers & E-recyclers on Environmentally Sound Management

Toronto, ON

11 and 12 June, 2013



The Commission for Environmental Cooperation invites businesses that refurbish and recycle used and end-of-life electronics to attend a workshop on environmentally sound management (ESM) issues and approaches at the facility-level. 

Increasingly, governments, clients, investors, and the public are looking for assurances that a company practices ESM.  ESM is also a cornerstone of international conventions and agreements on hazardous waste and recyclables.

Attendance to this workshop is free-of-charge*. The workshop will be delivered in English with simultaneous interpretation to French.


Attendees will receive email confirmation after registration (priority to Canadian businesses).

The workshop will provide a unique forum to discuss a variety of ESM topics, including: 

  • importance and benefits of ESM to your business;
  • implementing ESM at your facility;
  • assessing and managing risks;
  • performance measurement and reporting;
  • existing and emerging legal requirements.

The course content is based on best practices identified within the international community, including those developed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the United Nations (UN).


* Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses.
