In accordance with electronics recycling standards set forth by Electronics Product Stewardship Canada (EPSC), which prohibits the export of waste to countries not in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Sony Canada conducts its own independent audits of recyclers and the downstream processing firms which they subcontract.
