Derbyshire plants trees for Ricoh printers

Derbyshire County Council has dedicated 2,500 trees in a drive to offset the carbon emissions produced by its fleet of Ricoh printers, copiers and multifunctional devices.  


The council, has been participating in Ricoh’s carbon offsetting programme since 2004 and is the first of its customers to hit the milestone.


The printer manufacturer is working with Seeds for Africa , a charity which helps African schools and communities plant fruit trees in a bid to offset carbon emissions and to help them work themselves out of poverty. Under the programme for every 100,000 photocopies or prints generated by a customer a tree is planted.
