In addition to the company’s long-standing commitments to walking with a softer footprint, this newest partnership is just one way DCM is ramping up its sustainability efforts.
DATA Communications Management Corp. (DCM), a provider of marketing and business communication solutions to companies across North America, has announced a new partnership with PrintReleaf.
DCM partners with organisations focused on making a measurable impact in preserving and restoring our natural resources. All paper used in the company’s production process is produced from forests that are managed in a way that preserves the biological diversity of the land and respects the rights of workers, communities, and indigenous peoples. The company said this latest partnership with PrintReleaf further strengthens its commitment to sustainable leadership.
PrintReleaf provides its partners with a patented software platform that empowers companies to sustain and grow the global forestry system with every print job. “PrintReleaf is excited to partner with DCM. Their commitment to sustainability is first-class, and together we share a mutual interest to grow our global forestry system while supporting clients’ ESG initiatives,” said Jordan Darragh, CEO of PrintReleaf. Together with forestry and print industry experts, PrintReleaf has developed standards for measuring, offsetting, and verifying the successful reforestation of a business’ paper consumption.
“Partnering with PrintReleaf was an easy and natural decision for us,” said Richard Kellam, President and CEO of DCM. “Their global reforestation initiative aligns with our ESG strategy. DCM strives to be an industry leader in sustainable best practices, and to be able to make an impact on a global scale, on behalf of our company and our clients, is exciting and encouraging.”
PrintReleaf uses technology to measure paper consumption, calculates how many trees were harvested to produce that paper, and automatically reforests the number of trees that were consumed. “With this new partnership with PrintReleaf, DCM is essentially replanting one tree for every tree used in our paper production,” said Kellam. “The technological capability that PrintReleaf has built into its management platform is outstanding. We are able to identify how many trees are being replanted per print job and client and can see the impact our collective efforts are having in real time.”
