Ricoh Australia’s new carbon neutral arrangement will see the company offsetting the GHG emissions generated for the duration of any applicable lease, rental or hire purchase agreement, with the OEM’s latest range of MFPs and printers being eligible for the service.
The service will include an automated meter reading service and participation in Ricoh’s Consumable Recycling Programme; with several leading organisations already signing up, including RMIT University, with Neil Sigamoney, Deputy Director of Procurement at the university, explaining that the service shows its commitment to “reducing its carbon footprint and providing a safe and green university for staff and students”.
He added: “The University has a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of 25 per cent by 2020, based on a 2007 baseline. Our partnership with Ricoh Australia will help us reduce greenhouse gas emissions and foster a ‘think green’ culture within the University community.”
In addition, Ricoh Australia has been certified as a carboNZeroCertTM organisation – the first imaging technology services-based organisation in Australia to achieve this status.
Les Richardson, Managing Director at Ricoh Australia, said: “This achievement is the latest in Ricoh’s long history of sustainability milestones and reflects our passionate commitment to the environment.
“We are dedicated to doing our part toward a more sustainable society and through this initiative we can help our customers with their own sustainability goals.”
