In support of its commitment to continually find ways to innovate and support a more sustainable planet, Apogee Corporation has partnered with PrintReleaf to offer its customers an automated sustainability programme focused on reforestation. Through PrintReleaf, Apogee Corporation customers can now reforest their paper consumption by planting an equivalent volume of trees in certified forestry projects around the world.
Recognising the impact its business can have on the environment, the company is working hard to reduce its carbon footprint and begins by embracing this sustainability challenge as an opportunity to innovate and continuously improve the way they operate.
Based on a theme of ‘you print one, we will plant one’, PrintReleaf leverages paper use reporting and equates the number of trees needed to reforest that use on an equivalent basis in geographic areas of need. Through PrintReleaf, trees are automatically reforested across the global network of certified reforestation projects to continually offset a customer’s environmental impact.
Apogee Corporation customers may choose their reforestation sites or allow the software to automatically choose for them. Additionally, customers may track their progress, view certification as well as share the ongoing impact through social media, all from their own online portal.
‘We continue to increase our focus and actions on sustainability and PrintReleaf is an ideal partner to drive and improve sustainability within our group,’ said Mark Smyth, Apogee Corporations chief operating officer. ‘It is a robust platform that offers both our clients and teams a measurable and certifiable method for reforestation and we are delighted with this new collaboration.’
Apogee Corporation customers will be able to sign up for PrintReleaf as an add-on to a managed print services contract. Through an online portal, the company 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.
