There are multiple benefits to connecting to the PrintReleaf Exchange:
As part of our MPS model, we connect customers to the PrintReleaf Exchange [PRX] – a technology platform that measures a customer’s paper consumption and connects them to reforestation projects.
Within the platform, customers ‘releaf’ (or offset) their consumption by planting new trees equivalent to their consumption across global reforestation projects.
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, forest consumption is measured and trees are automatically releafed across our global network of certified reforestation projects to continually offset a customer’s environmental impact.
PrintReleaf has developed a rigorous audit process with SGS International, a leading global forestry auditor with expertise in Chain of Custody (CoC) certification, to uphold and maintain the integrity of the PrintReleaf Standard. Each reforestation project is audited over an eight year verification timeline to ensure 100% net survivability of trees. From the time of planting through the final audit, customers have transparent visibility on the timing and success of each audit during the entire process.
PrintReleaf certifies the reforestation of each customer’s forest footprint according to the measurement and calculations defined in the PrintReleaf Standard. When their forest footprint is releafed, customers are issued certificates for trees planted at reforestation projects of their choice. These certificates serve as living documents which are automatically updated when the trees are planted, audited, and verified survived over an eight year timeline.
