Sustainability & Environment
UTL are commited in supplying the very best in eco-friendly solutions using Energy Star certified hardware in place of separate energy-consuming units, and paperless document distribution systems.
Collaborating with market-leading manufacturers to reduce packaging, the use of hazardous and non-renewable materials and the environmental impact of the product lifecycle, from first manufacture to final disposal.
Recycling all redundant devices in line with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive.
PrintReleaf, from UTL, is a unique eco platform that empowers businesses to sustain and grow their global forestry system.
PrintReleaf has collaborated with industry experts in print and forestry to develop standards for measuring, offsetting, and verifying the successful reforestation of paper consumption, developing a standard, methodology, and technology platform that makes it simple for customers to certifiably reforest their paper consumption.
At the heart of the platform is a widely-accepted industry formula for equating paper volume to number of trees. The formula is: 8,333 sheets of standard A4 paper. PrintReleaf has adopted this formula and embedded it into their software to perform the measurement of a customer’s consumption. Then, the data is made ‘actionable’. Customers decide where they would like to reforest their consumption within PrintReleaf’s Certified™ global reforestation projects.
All projects are visible on a global map within the PrintReleaf platform. The map is integrated with Global Forest Watch that’s been developed and hosted by the World Resources Institute. Global Forest Watch provides a global diagnostic view of the Earth’s forestry system and illustrates net forest loss versus net forest gain. The data is collected primarily through satellite imaging as well as ground-level intelligence. Current data published by Global Forest Watch indicates that global deforestation significantly outpaces reforestation.
