SYDNEY, Australia – May 2015 – PrintSolv, the exclusive distributor of FMAudit products in Asia Pacific, has become an authorized distribution partner of the PrintReleaf Exchange [PRX], the first technology platform to enable cloud-based forest product (e.g., paper) tracking and reforestation. This strategic partnership allows the company to provide its network of channel partners and dealers with an innovative and authentic way to promote sustainable business practices and reduce the environmental impacts that can result from the use of forest products, such as printing.
PRX measures paper consumption through a patent-pending aggregation process that uses the automatic transmission of device and fleet data collected by print management software on imaging devices. This allows end users to help neutralize paper waste, improve efficiency and certifiably participate in sustaining our global forests.
With PRX, customers “releaf,” or reforest, their paper consumption by planting new trees – equivalent to their paper use – at global reforestation project sites of their choice. Through Print PrintReleaf’s integration with Global Forest Watch, a platform hosted by the World Resources Institute, customer’s interface with heat map technology that represents forest loss and gain across the globe, showing them which areas the planet needs trees most. PrintReleaf reforests at a generally accepted rate of 8,333 sheets of paper per tree (this equation is detailed in PrintReleaf’s global standard for sustainability). After selecting where they want their paper releafed, customers can use their online portal to track the evolution, growth, and survival of their trees over an approximate eight-year time frame for each tree.
“We are in the unique position of offering our network of dealers a competitive advantage by providing an automated solution to support Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives,” said Andrew Tsiorvas, PrintSolv’s General Manager. “When their clients choose to become PrintReleaf certified, they have the opportunity to provide end users with a ‘tree neutral’ print program. It’s as simple as saying yes, and putting their print data into action to replace the trees used to make the paper consumed, responding to growing demands for environmental solutions.”
Since the launch of PrintReleaf, the company has measured more than 200 million pages and releafed nearly 24,000 trees.
This partnership also provides PrintSolv’s channel partner’s customers with the option to integrate social media, automatically sharing monthly Twitter and Facebook announcements of releaf transactions that promote active participation in sustainable business practices.
