Océ Eco Program Funds Planting of More than 350,000 Trees on Behalf of Printers
Since 2009, Standard Register has been actively engaged in the Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) Supply Chain program to reduce carbon emissions. Participation in the program helped Standard Register identify ways to realize significant energy savings from emissions reduction activities. So when Standard Register decided to upgrade outdated printing technology, Océ’s Eco Start program and commitment to energy efficiency was a factor in their purchase decision.
“Replacing our digital fleet resulted in tremendous productivity gains,” said Steve McDonell, vice president of engineering. “But not only that—our new Océ fleet was a significant factor in reducing energy usage by 37 precent! Undoubtedly, without the Océ 6000 fleet it would have been difficult to realize that accomplishment.”
Océ Eco Start Program – Better Business and a Better World
Francis McMahon, vice president of marketing at Océ North America Production Printing Systems, summed it up this way, “Our business performance is critical to everything we do, as well as exceeding our customers’ expectations. But what’s also very important to us is how we interact with the communities we live in, and the world we live in. That’s why we developed the Océ Eco Start program and the partnership with Trees for the Future.”
