May 25, 2012

The Océ Eco Start Program funded the planting, held in partnership with Trees for the Future.

Océ, a Canon Group company, has announced that over 350,000 trees were planted in 2011, funded by the Océ Eco Start Program and in collaboration with Trees for the Future.

The trees planted on behalf of the OEM’s customers are intended to help offset CO2 emissions attributed to the energy usage from production equipment during the first year of operation.

The scheme has garnered support from Océ customers, with Mari and Gary Reed, owners of Dakota Press, commenting: “Our business is now a certified green business and that could not have been possible without the help from Océ. We were delighted that the Eco Start Program was in place as it showed us that together we can make a difference in the future!”

Jodie MacLellan, Marketing Manager of Field Programs, Océ North America, added: “Our customers are taking sustainability very seriously and looking for more environmentally responsible ways to do business.

“We are extremely proud of our leadership in this arena and of the Océ Eco Start Program in particular. We are delighted at the response we’ve gotten from our customers, who have contributed their ideas and feedback, which has been an essential component of honing our sustainability efforts.”
