TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 18, 2023 / Sparta Group (TSXV:SAY)(OTC PINK:SCAXF) (the "Corporation", the "Company", "Sparta Group", "Sparta Capital", "SAY.V" or "Sparta") is proud to announce that its Environment division has been awarded Gold Supplier Partner status as part of the OECM's annual Supplier Recognition Program.

OECM (Ontario Education and Collaborative Marketplace) is a well-respected sourcing partner for the public sector. It works with innovative, reputable suppliers to offer high-quality products and services, as well as generate savings for customers. Recently, OECM executives informed ERS-International™ Sparta's flagship company under its Environment division, that the gold level award is in recognition for its Electronic Device Disposal and Recycling Services and indicated that ERS plays a "fundamental role in ensuring customer needs are met with consistent service."

Currently, Sparta's Environment division supports electronic waste processing facilities in Toronto, Ontario, as well as in Oman, on the southeastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula.

"We strive for high standards every day and try to stand out above others in our space, pioneering initiatives like offering validated carbon credits for end-of-life electronic equipment or expanding to the middle east where they have an abundance of obsolete electronics piled up. The fact that we have been recognized by an organization like the OECM for exceeding expectations in our industry is great. It also opens opportunity for our company to be featured in OECM's growing marketplace, through its marketing materials, live events, and social media channels," said John O'Bireck, President and CTO for the Sparta Group of companies.

This is not the first time Sparta's Environment division has received recognition for its efforts in recycling and upcycling electronic waste. The ERS operation in East Toronto has received awards from the Recycling Council of Ontario, Call2Recycle, GreenLiving, World Trade Group, as well as the Ontario Ministry of the Environment.

Last fall, ERS became the first electronic waste operation in North America to be fully certified to generate verified carbon credits from the processing of e-waste.
