At Ecoreco, we are committed to provide completely integrated environment friendly recycling solution to the end of life electrical & electronic equipment. At the same time, we recognise that our activity might have health, safety and environmental risks at the workplace(s) & the surrounding. As our moral responsibility we obligate to take all practical steps to prevent harm to the environment & the surrounding and to the health & safety of our employees, customers, vendors and visitors.
By virtue of its nature of activity itself, Ecoreco protects damage to the environment and helps maintaining ecological balance by deploying the commodities back to the main stream of industries recovered from the used electrical & electronic equipment and thereby reduce dependence on mining and save on carbon emissions.

Working for Environment & Ecology to Earn & serve

Across its locations, Ecoreco provides equal opportunities to all its employees and all qualified applicants for employment without regard to their race, caste, religion, colour, ancestry, marital status, sex, age, nationality and different ability status. To ensure diversity of its workforce, Ecoreco exercises positive discrimination in favour of socially disadvantaged communities provided potential employees fulfil its merit-based criteria.

Ecoreco also promotes human rights widely through its policy of inclusive growth. To foster inclusive growth, the Company encourages local buying, particularly from small entrepreneurs and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), whose revenue flows, benefit the local and disadvantaged communities.
Ecoreco continually revisits its social strategy to align it to the developmental needs of the disadvantaged and indigenous communities. Key elements of Ecoreco's social strategy include sustainable livelihoods, access to education and empowerment.
Corruption is the willingness to act dishonestly in return for money or personal gain and is an aspect of human behaviour that has been around for a long time. For that reason, it may be easy to forget the damage that corruption does. By wrongly benefiting a few individuals who abuse their power or position, corruption creates unfair competition, damages innovation and undermines integrity.
Because of the damage corruption does to the public good, it is illegal around the world, and each country has its own Anti-corruption Laws that have to be followed (all such laws are collectively hereinafter referred to as "Anti-corruption Laws"). For purposes of this Policy, please assume that these Anti-corruption Laws apply to everyone and every party associated with Ecoreco, no matter where in the world you are located. This Policy states the Company's position with regard to Anti-corruption. All employees, sales consultants, directors, officers and Board members (collectively hereinafter referred to as "Company Personnel") are required to fully comply with this Policy and the provisions of all applicable Anti-corruption Laws. Compliance with this Policy and these laws is a condition of continued employment or association with Ecoreco, and violations will not be tolerated – any alleged breach will be investigated and disciplinary action taken as appropriate. Failure by Company Personnel to comply with this Policy may expose the Company to substantial risk and could jeopardize its operations and reputation. You should also beware that violations of certain Anti-corruption Laws may subject individual Company Personnel to both criminal penalties, including prison sentences, and civil liability.
Ecoreco does not pay and does not condone paying bribes to anyone. Company Personnel are prohibited from giving or offering bribes, kickbacks, or similar payment or consideration of any kind, whether at home or abroad, to any person or entity (including but not limited to any customers or potential customers, government official, political party, candidate for political office or any intermediaries, such as agents, attorneys or consultants) in order to: influence official acts or decisions of that person or entity; obtain or retain business or a business advantage for, or direct business to, the Company; and/ or secure any improper advantage. Similarly, Ecoreco does not accept and does not condone the acceptance or receipt of bribes from anyone.
Company personnel are prohibited from accepting or receiving bribes, kickbacks, or similar payment or consideration of any kind, whether at home or abroad, from any person or entity which is intended to, or which may be perceived as being intended to: influence one's official acts or decisions; obtain or retain business or a business advantage for, or direct business to, the offer or of the bribe and/or any entity that he/she represents; and/ or secure any improper advantage for the offer or of the bribe and/or any entity that he/she represents. While it is the Company's policy to prohibit the paying of bribes to anyone, some of the Anti-corruption Laws primarily apply to payments to government officials.
