Ricoh Picks Up INGEDE Certification
Ink firm Ricoh has gained an accreditation from the International Association of the Deinking Industry (INGEDE).
The firm picked up the certification after it proved that toner from its digital colour printing press portfolio can be removed from paper during the recycling process.
As well as this, the ink specialist has announced that its printing activity at drupa 2012 will be carbon neutral due to the use of the Ricoh Carbon Balanced Printing Programme.
Graham Moore, business development director for Ricoh Europe's production printing business group, said: "Ricoh is at the forefront of providing the tools, services and certified products that make an environmentally responsible printing business easier to achieve than ever before."
His remarks come after the Office Depot Small Business Index found that 72 per cent of small businesses are looking to lower their carbon footprint by decreasing waste, whereas 61 per cent are planning to buy energy efficient products.
