Taking it to the Green on a Global Level
Advantage Business Systems customers have – in just one year – collectively offset more than 7 million standard pages of paper consumption by reforesting 912 standard trees around the world. This is good news for a planet that’s losing forests at a rate of about one soccer field every 1.2 seconds. And that doesn’t factor in data related to the forest fires in the Amazon this summer.
Based on a theme of “you print one, we’ll plant one,” PrintReleaf leverages paper usage reporting and equates the number of trees needed to reforest that usage on an equivalent basis in geographic areas of need.
ABS partnered with PrintReleaf in August 2018. Since then the company’s customers have offset the equivalent of 7,602,143 standard pages of paper consumption by reforesting 912 standard trees on the PrintReleaf Exchange. Customers may sign up for PrintReleaf as an add-on to a managed print services contract. Through an online portal, customers may select the managed forestry projects where their trees will be planted, in addition to tracking and reporting on their direct reforestation impact.
PrintReleaf is the only technology platform that measures customers' paper usage and equates the number of trees needed to reforest that usage on an equivalent basis. The patented PrintReleaf technology not only tracks paper consumption, but also monitors PrintReleaf reforestation partners to ensure fulfillment. Market-leading companies with a passion for the environment and a progressive concern for advancing environmental stewardship, together with their customers, rely on PrintReleaf to provide a nexus of partnerships involving forestry, technology, and business.
