Capital Solution’s partner Ricoh wins at Green Awards 2011.

We’re delighted to announce that our partner Ricoh was presented with one of the top prizes at the prestigious International Green Awards 2011. The Ricoh Sustainability Optimisation Programme scooped the Silver Award in the ‘Best Green Service Innovation’ category. The award recognises a service that minimises resource use, is truly sustainable and has a genuine ‘value-added’ proposition.  In just two years, Ricoh and their partners have helped more than 4,300 customers reduce their carbon emissions by an average of 35% and reduce the total cost of ownership of Ricoh devices by 28%. The Programme, accredited by the British Standards Institution (BSI), is available as part of a Managed Print Service which is designed to help businesses reduce, optimise and neutralise their carbon emissions, to create a carbon balanced print environment.

It’s the third time Ricoh has been independently awarded the Programme this year. It also received the top prize in the ‘EFQM Sustainability Good Practice Competition’ and was recognised by NIMA, the Dutch Institute of Marketing in the Sustainable Business category.  Olivier Vriesendorp, Marketing Director Ricoh Europe said, “Ricoh is committed to go beyond simply meeting regulatory requirements. We are committed to making a difference through our technology innovation, process improvement and services such as this Programme.

As a Ricoh Prestige Partner and an accredited ISO 14001 Environmental Management company, Capital is ideally placed to help your business meet its environmental objectives in 2012.  Give us a call on 0800 844  744 to discover how.
