MPS Monitor said in a blog post, that it has always been committed to respecting natural resources through the partnership with PrintReleaf, an organisation that aims to neutralise the environmental impact of printing processes through certified reforestation projects: 56,393 trees have been planted all over the world up to today to compensate the pages printed through the devices monitored by MPS Monitor.
Reviewing its activity, MPS Monitor explained that it transmits the data from the monitored devices to the PrintReleaf platform, which automatically compensates for paper consumption with the planting of trees in different areas of the world, based on a ratio of 8,333 sheets of paper per tree.
PrintReleaf set a goal of planting one trillion trees which the platform launched in support of the United Nations Decade 2021-2030 for the restoration of the ecosystem.
PrintReleaf wrote: “Joining MPS Monitor and PrintReleaf therefore means helping a very important cause: planting 10 million trees by 2030 in areas such as Madagascar, Ireland, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, India, Canada, Brazil and the United States, which can thus count on continuous reforestation action. The areas where to activate the process of new tree plantings can be selected directly on the PrintReleaf platform.”
The reforestation projects are certified by SGS International, an international certification body that verifies the 100% net survival of the forests managed by PrintReleaf’s partner organisations. These partners employ local staff and thus promote job opportunities in rural areas. In this way, PrintReleaf’s planting projects generate value both in terms of environmental and social sustainability.
