LONDON -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/13 -- E-Waste Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: EWSI) ('EWSI' or the "Company"), an electronic waste management services, technology and reverse logistics company and the first pure public eWaste company, announced today that, it has agreed to a Master License Distribution Agreement with Village Green Global, Inc. ('VGG'), offering wider commercial benefits for EWSI and its affiliates. The revolutionary combination of eWaste and Carbon Credits in one package presents significant revenue opportunities within a combined $100+ Billion eWaste and $80+ Billion carbon credit market.

Predicted to be the world's biggest commodity market growing to $1 trillion within a decade, the management of carbon emissions is one of the fastest-growing segments in many developed cities. The global carbon market is estimated at $84 billion at the end of 2012. (1) Exponential proliferation of electronics, including global manufacturing, distribution, and the resultant e-waste, leaves a massive carbon footprint. It is estimated that the embodied emissions in electronic goods imported to the US alone increased nearly 300% from ~170 Million metric tons of CO2 in 1997 to ~470 Million metric tons just seven years later.(2)
"Beyond the obvious benefit of reducing carbon emissions and generating revenues from Carbon Credits, the immediate savings on energy consumption and the environmentally responsible recycling which follows, makes eWasteCC of great appeal even for small companies that would not think of trading on the CC market on their own," said Mr. Martin Nielson, Founder and CEO of EWSI.
"Simultaneous with this rollout, we are now publicly announcing an active USA and global recruitment effort, inviting business executives and resellers to join us. We call out to organizations who want to reduce their cost of operations, increase their revenues and reduce their carbon footprint to contact us as prospective customers. And, we call on recyclers, distributors, IT systems integrators and other companies in the reverse logistics industry to join us as affiliates in the rollout out of this breakthrough opportunity to make a greener planet while enhancing commercial results," stated Mr. Nielson.
The strategy behind the commercial deployment of eWasteCC is twofold. First, in conjunction with the proprietary SMARTweb software from VGG, EWSI offers organizations an effective solution to drive down energy costs and recover value from their old electronics. Second, the technology provides a detailed and visual map through an entire organization whereby their electronic devices are automatically measured and analyzed to deliver performance improvements, identify problem areas, eliminate underperforming assets and generate carbon credit revenues. It is a comprehensive way to reduce costs of operation. And most importantly, with eWasteCC and EWSI's ZERO LANDFILL commitment, adopters of this technology can achieve additional potential benefits of revenue enhancements from carbon credit sales.
In conjunction with this announcement, the public is reminded that the software's public launch and demonstration will take place on August 15th, 2013 from 8:00am to 10:00am at the Microsoft Store in Costa Mesa, CA. An invitation is posted on EWSI's website: www.ewastesystems.com. EWSI's team in Southern California, led by Julie Peterson, President of E-Waste Systems (CA) and Doug Smith, Founder and CEO of VGG, will oversee the rollout following the public launch later this week.
