Toshiba Celebrates Earth Day Year-Round

Toshiba America Business Solutions commemorates Earth Day 2024 by facilitating the replanting of trees across ecologically sensitive areas worldwide while also preventing e-waste from filling open land. Last year alone, the company was responsible for replanting 24,557 trees across the United States, Ireland, France, Tanzania, Canada, Madagascar, Dominican Republic and Malaysia while also recycling nearly 42 U.S. tons of empty toner cartridges.

By recycling 1,775 tons of e-waste since beginning its EcoSmart Toner Recycling Program in 2008, Toshiba is accountable for preserving many open spaces. Toshiba’s EcoSmart Toner Recycling Program results from its partnership with international recycler Close the Loop, which transforms spent cartridges for reuse.  Many of the cartridge components return to the commodities market while other elements convert into new products including asphalt material for resurfacing roads.

Toshiba, since collaborating with PrintReleaf in 2016, is responsible for reforesting 173,723 trees within ecologically sensitive areas globally. For every 8,333 sheets printed, Toshiba clients may select where to replant a tree based on U.N. Sustainable Goal recommendations.

PrintReleaf moreover partners with the globally recognized inspection, verification, testing and certification organization SGS International to certify the forestry partners and individual projects while also verifying the 100 percent net survival of the trees.

Toshiba provides many other initiatives to help organizations operate more sustainably:

  • Encompass Green Report – Analysis of the environmental impact of each device in the organization, including energy usage, CO2 emissions, and paper consumption;
  • Paper Reuse Report – Tracks the amount of paper Toshiba clients save and reuse while measuring the impact on lessening carbon emissions and reforestation;
  • Output Management Solutions – Helps companies track, manage, and set policies for print usage to better understand and control printer waste both in the cloud and on-premises;
  • Circular Manufacturing – Integrates recycled plastics within its e-STUDIO™ multifunction printers; and
  • Proven Certifications – Toshiba systems meet stringent criteria of major environmental standards and certifications including EPEAT® Gold, Restriction of Hazardous Substances (or RoHS) and ENERGY STAR®.
