Toshiba celebrates Earth Day

April 22, 2021

Toshiba America Business Solutions commemorated Earth Day 2021 while continuing its commitment to a more sustainable planet through ongoing recycling and reforesting initiatives.

Toshiba reflected that the company’s focus on recycling and reforesting initiatives led to the recycling of more than 68 U.S. tons of used toner cartridges and reforesting of 21,422 trees in 2020.

Recycling Preserves Open Space
Preventing more than 1,610 tons of e-waste from entering landfills since 2008 is the result of Toshiba’s EcoSmart Toner Recycling Programme in partnership with the internationally recognised recycler, Close the Loop. This weight is equivalent to 501 of the latest Zamboni ice resurfacing machines.

Toshiba said its EcoSmart Toner Recycling Programme ensures the transformation of the company’s spent toner cartridges for reuse. Many of the components convert into new products including an asphalt material for resurfacing roads.

Global Reforestation
Toshiba has facilitated the replanting of 99,736 trees across global reforestation projects in Madagascar, Dominican Republic, United States, Mexico, Ireland, Canada, Brazil and India since partnering with PrintReleaf in 2016. Toshiba customers choose the specific areas they want to reforest per recommendations of the World Resources Institute’s Global Forest Watch initiative.

A new tree is planted once a Toshiba customer prints 8,333 sheets. SGS International, a world-leading inspection, verification, testing and certification organisation, certifies the global reforestation partners while verifying the 100% net survival of the trees.

“Establishing a more sustainable and healthier planet through our day-to-day efforts is a primary focus of our Toshiba workforce,” stated Toshiba America Business Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Maccabe. “While pleased with our current accomplishments in this area, we assertively strive to improve upon and surpass these achievements in 2021 and beyond.”
