    Kyocera has announced a new partnership with PrintReleaf, a global certification system and software platform dedicated to automating reforestation to offset paper consumption. This allows Kyocera Document Solutions customers to contribute to a reforestation project in Ireland that plants an equivalent volume of trees correlating to the paper usage in Kyocera Document Solutions devices.

    In addition to collecting monthly data on customer print usage, Kyocera will automatically and certifiably plant trees in Ireland based on total paper consumption. Reforesting is done by PrintReleaf at a rate of 8,333 sheets per standard tree, as detailed in the PrintReleaf Standard, and 100% net survivability of the trees is guaranteed. The PrintReleaf portal allows PrintReleaf partners and customers to track their progress and share the ongoing impact of the Taskalfa Pro 15000c production printer.

    "Our partnership with PrintReleaf further supports Kyocera’s commitment to sustainability through our products, manufacturing processes and as a wider organisation” said Steve Pearce, Group Marketing Manager at Kyocera.

    “The Kyocera TASKalfa Pro 15000c already reduces impact on the environment thanks to its ultra-low power consumption through inkjet print head technology and by utilising waterbased inks. By offering the additional reforestation of a customer’s printed pages we believe we have a ground breaking environmental proposition.”

    Jordan Darragh, Founder and CEO of PrintReleaf, said, "We are excited to partner with Kyocera. Our environmental goals and philosophy match Kyocera's, and we look forward to strengthening our sustainability commitments and growing our global forests together."
