SERI has been evaluating the benefits of implementing ChainPoint to coincide with the rollout of the next version of the R2 Standard. ChainPoint is an information management software used by other sustainability standards to manage the certification workflow. With the rapid and extensive growth of R2 Certification worldwide (827 facilities in 31 countries), a more robust system for managing the R2 Certification Program would help SERI to maintain low operating costs, and at the same time, help recyclers in their preparation for audits and management of audit information.
Starting in January, SERI will be releasing more detailed previews of ChainPoint and R2v3 proposed standard changes. Stay tuned!
