Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has become a buzzword for many businesses that are seeking to have a positive impact on their world, including the environment.
Generally it involves a business taking responsibility for its actions through a combination of creating value, managing risk and being involved in corporate philanthropy. The idea is to positively influence customers, employees, the community, the environment and other stakeholders.
At LaserCycle USA, we have demonstrated our commitment to sustainability and CSR through our integrated document solutions, which help lower total printing costs while reducing the impact on the environment. As one of the nation’s largest producers of recycled, remanufactured laser toner cartridges, we’ve sold more than one million of these cartridges. This has resulted in four million pounds of plastic kept out of landfills by our recycling efforts, in addition to substantial greenhouse gas elimination.
We track this impact on our website, through a real-time counter that shows the number of pounds of CO2 recycled cartridges save. In over two decades of remanufacturing toner cartridges, we’ve been able to keep over 3 million pounds of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.
As another plank of our CSR platform, we provide a Paper Offset Program to neutralize our customers’ paper usage. This involves planting trees in local forest fire burn areas and in those forests affected by pine beetle kill. We also honor customers for their recycling accomplishments, including the amount of plastic kept out of landfills as a result of using recycled laser printer cartridges.
In our own manufacturing and business practices, we maintain the highest CSR standards through the use of environmentally responsible packaging, recycling and landfill reduction initiatives.
