Genesis Dome contributes to managing the recycling process and simultaneously aims to be informative on the services they provide. On their sustainability page, they list reasons why companies may find it beneficial to switch over to sustainability. Reasons are listed as reducing resource/energy costs, adherence to federal laws and regulations, boosting employee morale, and societal impact. The simple wording is educational and shares what companies would deem as relevant benefits.
In today’s post, we look into the informative Genesis Dome showing companies the benefits of a fully managed recycling ecosystem. Genesis Dome oversees a variety of services that promote zero-landfill waste elimination for companies striving to turn waste into resources.
Knowing the Company: Genesis Dome
Genesis Dome offers sustainable waste management practices with a model that can change based on what’s needed. The industry-specific lens allows the initiative to reach more professional fields, ultimately making the impact reach further too. Think about it. If they can assist more industries, they can place more waste into their sustainable ecosystem.
On the Our Story page, the initiative boldly states that they are true to their initial intentions:
“Since Genesis’s inception, the vision and end goal has been nothing less than a 100% zero-landfill policy. It was a true passion of the founders, and it drove all operational procedures, set KPIs, and shaped subsequent strategic and technical directions.”
Beyond zero-landfill waste elimination, Genesis Dome’s sustainable ecosystem helps with cost reduction and business growth solutions within the recycling process. Projects and services provided by the initiative include e-waste recycling, end-of-life management, brand protection, IT data security, product disposition, IT asset disposition, and electronics recycling. They work in a variety of professional fields, such as aerospace, communications, software, utilities, banking, consumer goods, and much more.
What Surprised Us
So, why are we talking about Genesis Dome? To start, every person, place, company, campaign, or anything, has its own part to play. That means we are all capable of tackling different areas of the same topic, issue, or concern. That also means we all excel in different areas, and can learn from each other.

When exploring the initiative’s official site, the pattern of explaining the benefits of the sustainable services, and also explaining the disadvantages of not adopting more sustainable business practices show up throughout various pages on their site. The site’s information is digestible in a society of digital overconsumption.
More than that, the easy-to-read site can be a place to discover new terms and organizations. Apparently, Genesis Dome is R2 Certified and got the certification back in 2012. The Responsible Recycling (R2) Standard provides a widely adopted list of processes, safety measures, and documentation requirements for businesses that repair and recycle e-waste. All certifications go through the Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI).
Among the many services provided by Genesis Dome, e-waste seems to be part of what makes the initiative stand out. All their procedures and extra efforts towards secure e-waste management support that they take electronics and data seriously. Once again, catering to what companies (especially ones who want to safeguard company information) would view as a benefit. It’s to the point that Genesis Dome boasts memberships in NAID (National Association for Information Destruction) and ISRI (Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries).
What is the benefit for good
The aims of Genesis Dome fall under 100% zero-landfill mission, closed-loop manufacturing, and circular economy. They are picking up efforts towards the end of the recycling ecosystem. There are social enterprises that collect materials and waste directly from landfills and oceans covering a separate part of the cycle. Genesis Dome creates disruption in the cycle that stops items from reaching landfills and oceans in the first place.
Two individual approaches, but we need both. Society needs time to figure out how to integrate new sustainable practices in our everyday understanding of business and consumption. Until then, two individual approaches take care of reducing and preventing the issue.
With Genesis Dome suggesting sustainable solutions for waste management, closed-loop manufacturing can have a faster integration into business. Like their official site states, the benefits of a recycling ecosystem reach the planet and the businesses. On the homepage, Genesis Dome says they got into asset disposition since their team of recycling experts focuses on “integrity, security, and zero-landfill recycling.” That commitment displays a sense of accountability for the corner of the circular economy they are choosing to make better.
We like to encourage actively participating with positive initiatives. Each person making their own choice to participate adds up! Whether you engage for fun, inspiration, or expression, here are our suggestions for engaging this initiative:
- Check out the Art from Recycled Material page.
- Browse this SERI article about the origins of the R2 certification.
- Suggest to your company (social enterprise or non-social enterprise) to consider using Genesis Dome for e-waste or other waste management needs
