DENVER, CO, March 27, 2018 (Press Release) -EKM Global, the international managed print service software supplier and consultancy, today announced it has entered a partnership with PrintReleaf to drive environmental sustainability in printer paper consumption. PrintReleaf is a rapidly growing organization dedicated to sustainability by monitoring printer paper consumption at companies and, by each paying a small fee for every piece of paper used, to fund reforestation programs to balance or grow our global forestry system.
PrintReleaf has developed a standard, methodology, and technology platform - PRX - that makes it simple for customers to certifiably reforest their paper consumption. EKM's Insight print management solutions enable its customers to optimize print resources and operations and lock the gains in through advanced service delivery automation software. EKM and PrintReleaf have integrated the two platforms to provide fully automated reporting from any EKM customer site directly to PrintReleaf PRX. This makes it straightforward for customers to offset their paper consumption with equivalent, certified paper reforestation.
"Care for the environment has rightly become a key concern for all companies - something that they both want to do and to be seen to be doing as well," said Ian McRae, CEO, EKM Global. "Our partnership with PrintReleaf makes it easy for our customers to improve their green credentials and make a real, measurable and positive impact on the environment. It is said that trees are the lungs of the earth and bold initiatives such as this will help it breathe a little more easily."
"Our partnership with EKM Global is another positive step toward growing our global network of partners and customers to drive certified reforestation in the print industry," said Jordan Darragh, CEO, PrintReleaf. "We look forward to extending our solution to new markets with EKM Global and planting more trees with their customers."
