Xerox partners with Print Releaf for reforestation
Project will allow Xerox MPS customers to automatically have trees planted to offset paper usage
Xerox has partnered with PrintReleaf, a project which tracks paper usage and plants trees to offset paper usage.
Under the partnership, customers for Xerox managed print services, will be able to contribute to reforestation using PrintReleaf's technology platform and certification system.
Based on a theme of "you print one, we'll plant one," PrintReleaf leverages paper usage reporting from MPS, and equates the number of trees needed to reforest that usage on an equivalent basis in identified geographic areas. Trees are automatically replanted based on consumption.
Xerox customers around the world will be able to sign up for PrintReleaf as an add-on to a managed print services contract. Through an online portal, Xerox will help customers select the managed forestry projects where their trees will be planted, in addition to tracking and reporting on their direct reforestation impact.
"From our Green World Alliance program to the Xerox Print Awareness Tool, we have long been known for our dedication to sustainability," said Wendi Latko, vice president, Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability, Xerox. "With PrintReleaf, now we're able to take that commitment one step further by empowering our MPS customers with an industry certified service that will accelerate and promote their efforts as stewards of the environment."
"Xerox's roots in sustainability make it an ideal partner for us in our continued work towards a more sustainable planet," said Jordan Darragh, CEO and founder, PrintReleaf. "This partnership holds great potential as we expand our network of PrintReleaf users and reach new reforestation goals."
