How PrintReleaf Works

PrintReleaf is a service which helps customers reduce their environmental impact through a patent pending software platform, the PrintReleaf Exchange [PRX]. PRX connects enterprise printer environments to a network of Global Reforestation Projects. Through PRX, customers certifiably reforest their paper consumption by planting trees where the planet needs them most.

PrintReleaf guarantees every sheet of paper a customer consumes will be reforested at a rate of 8,333 sheets of standard letter (8.5 x 11” x 20lb paper) per tree (40 ft height x 7 in width). Through PRX, paper is automatically measured and trees are automatically releafed across PrintReleaf Certified Global Reforestation Projects on a monthly basis to continually offset a customer’s environmental impact.

PRX measures paper consumption through technology integrations with popular Managed Print Services (MPS) print monitoring software applications and OEM databases which capture the required paper consumption data (meter data) to drive the Print Releaf service. PRX plants trees through a network of certified reforestation projects located around the world.

Once trees are planted, PrintReleaf administers an 8 year audit process to track the progress and survivability of the trees. Third party verification and reporting services are provided by a certifying body (CB) – SGS International – a leading international forestry auditor. The verification process is visible to the customer in PRX to provide transparency and certification. PrintReleaf provides a way for customers to actively participate in sustainable business practices and certifiably replace what they take from the world’s forests.

All PrintReleaf Certified Global Reforestation Projects are audited by SGS International over an 8-year period to ensure 100% net survivability of trees planted. SGS is the world’s leading verification, testing, certification and inspection company and is recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. With more than 78,000 employees, and over 110,000 certificates issued worldwide, they run a network of 1,325 offices and laboratories around the world.
