SIFT has gone through a bit of growth recently and was in need of a decent colour printer, scanner and photocopier so we could produce professional documents in house. Our little inkjet printer just wasn’t cutting it anymore. Being a charity buying a big multi-function device was out of the question. So, we approached Ricoh (whose Christchurch office is very near ours) and asked them if they could help us out with a second hand machine on loan (and in return we would tweet and blog about the good things Ricoh are doing for the environment). And they said yes!! Super pleased.
Our printer/photocopier was installed on Wednesday and has already been used. Apparently it’s four generations old but still does a great job. You wouldn’t think that a machine like this would be significant to how a business produces quality work, but it does. It will help us to produce documentation, artwork and presentations that are of a higher quality, it will allow us to scan more than one item at once (super fast archiving) and will help us to assist those projects that are making a big difference to reducing waste to landfill.
Ricoh, we found out, is also a sustainably led organisation. Here are a few key eco-creds that make them a “good” New Zealand business worth supporting:
There is so much more that Ricoh NZ is doing and you can read it all here in their latest Sustainability Report. They have an environment programme in place that looks at the whole picture from staff to their dealers, their customers, products, waste and emissions. It is good to know that Ricoh are quietly doing the right thing actively reducing their impact on the environment. What we want to see is all businesses acting in this way so that Corporate Social Responsibility and the reductions of carbon emissions, resources, and waste is the social norm.
Thanks Matt and Hannah (and the service team) from Ricoh for helping us with our remit to reduce waste to landfill. It is great to have business service providers that are aligned with your business values and objectives. Your support is greatly appreciated.
