Do you have a team at your company responsible for sustainability initiatives? More businesses have established concrete and measurable processes to protect the environment. Environmental initiatives are good for business, too, as customers are increasingly interested in doing business with companies that have make sustainability a priority.
In fact, a recent study shows that 87 percent of people surveyed made purchases from businesses based on the company’s advocacy for an issue they care about.
One of the most pressing issues for our planet is the destruction of forests for the manufacture of wood and paper products. Global Forest Watch disclosed that in 2018, thirty football fields-worth of forests were eradicated every sixty seconds.
Forests are essential for our planet’s health as they provide habitats, filter our water and air, and help regulate our climate, making reforestation an important part of a strong sustainability effort.
However, many companies aren’t sure how to get the sustainability ball rolling. That’s where PointManagement can help.
Our simple, easy-to-incorporate system of environmental initiatives can help you reduce your — and your customer’s — carbon footprint. We provide a series of resources that you can integrate into your business one at a time or all at once, as you choose.
Our Environmental Impact Methods Boost Your Sustainability
Sustainability programs are a great way to gain consumer respect while doing something positive to help our environment. At PointManagement, we provide a range of actions you can take to solidify your corporate responsibility program and decrease your carbon footprint.
Let’s look at one with the most impact — global reforestation.
Jumpstart Your Sustainability with Reforestation Through PrintReleaf
You and your customers can help preserve — and increase — forests around the globe by participating in our partnership with PrintReleaf.
Joining is simple — automated software provided by PrintReleaf measures consumption data over time by integrating effortlessly with our Managed Print Services (MPS) to accurately determine paper usage.
This data calculates your “paper footprint” to arrive at the appropriate number of trees needed to offset that number.
Then, for every 8,333 pages printed, PrintReleaf will plant a tree in the forest of your choice in locations around the world — from Madagascar to Mexico to the United States and beyond.
PrintReleaf’s reforestation projects not only help your business contribute to our planet’s environmental health, but they also offer employment to the communities in which they operate to revitalize local economies.
If you’re looking for even more ways to increase your organization’s level of environmental responsibility, you can add another element to increase your positive impact on resources.
Then, Add in Remanufactured Toner
Statistics show that over 375 million OEM cartridges are choking landfills every year. And consider this: It takes a thousand years for just one of these cartridges to decompose, putting a heavy burden on the environment.
Using remanufactured cartridges —cartridges that have been remanufactured using recycled empty cores from OEM products use 44% fewer natural resources and have a 51% smaller environmental impact.
Plus, using remanufactured cartridges contributes to your overall sustainability by keeping cartridges out of the landfill.
High-end cartridge remanufacturers provide superior-quality products that meet or exceed OEM standards, so you can enjoy cost savings and quality alongside environmental benefits.
