ERI Founder John Shegerian Featured as Speaker at Raytheon’s Biannual EHSS Forum

LOUISVILLE, Ky.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–John Shegerian, Chairman, CEO and co-founder of Electronic
Recyclers International (ERI)
, the nation’s leading recycler of
electronic waste and the world’s largest cybersecurity-focused hardware
destruction company, was a featured plenary speaker yesterday at
Raytheon’s biannual corporate EHHS (environmental, health, safety and
sustainability) Forum.

Raytheon, largely considered a leading green and sustainability-focused
business, had recently featured information about ERI in its annual
“Raytheon Corporate Responsibility Report,” and invited Shegerian to
speak about the importance of responsibly recycling electronics – for
environmental, cyber security and human rights reasons – at the forum,
held at the Hyatt Regency in Louisville.

In his presentation, Shegerian detailed ERI’s industry leading efforts
to protect digital security while recycling all electronics in an
environmentally responsible manner – and doing it here in the US.

“We are excited John agreed to be a plenary speaker at our EHSS Forum
this year,” said Frank A. Marino, Senior Manager of Environmental,
Health, Safety and Sustainability for Raytheon. “Raytheon is committed
to 100 percent eco-responsible e-waste management. Working with ERI we
are able to responsibly process e-waste of all types – IT and non-IT –
from all locations.”

“It is an absolute honor and privilege to share insights and partner
with a sustainability-minded and socially responsible organization such
as Raytheon,” said John Shegerian, ERI’s Chairman and CEO. “We’re
particularly proud to continue as the electronic waste processing
supplier for Raytheon, helping the company streamline its e-waste
management to be a leader in yet another category. We look forward to
supporting Raytheon’s commitment to information security and
environmental protection for many years to come.”

The Forum was attended by approximately 175 of Raytheon’s EHSS
professionals from around the country, as well as visiting employees
from Raytheon’s international operations.
