Inking a better tomorrow, together with our customers

 

Planting trees in Peru

As leaders in continuous inkjet coding, and as part of our "Marking the Next Generation" philosophy, we are always scrutinizing the technology for ways to make it a more viable eco-friendly option.

 

For example, we have recently launched:

  • An all-in-one silver ink which lets extrusion suppliers code most substrate types in various colors with one ink, so there is less hardware to be manufactured and discarded at the end of life.
  • Four MEK-free inks which in essence consume less, have a positive outcome on the overall reduction of volatile organic compound emissions (VOCs), precursors to greenhouse gases. Related CO2 emissions are therefore reduced by up to 50%. This is true, usually for the same total cost of ownership (TCO).
  • Two of the MEK-free inks are multi-purpose, like the all-in-one silver for extrusion, meaning there are fewer scrap-creating mistakes, so less of this waste goes to landfill.

 

But we are not stopping there!

 

This year we have decided to help reduce our environmental footprint even further by contributing to Reforest’Action efforts.

Reforest’Action, the forest specialist, is a B Corp-certified company dedicated to preserving, restoring, and creating forests in France and around the world, in response to climate emergencies and biodiversity loss. To do this, Reforest’Action selects forestry projects and supports them financially, guaranteeing their quality, in order to develop their environmental, social, and economic multifunctionality in the long term. 

We will plant one tree for every case of multi-purpose EB588 and FB655 MEK-free ink purchased!

 

Taking action to protect the forests. Buy a box of these inks and we will plant a tree.

 

In this way, we invite our customers to join us in our efforts to improve sustainability. Their usage of MEK-free inks will not only lessen the amount of VOCs released into the environment, but their purchase will also help protect and restore forests.

Trees for Peru!

We will be planting our initial trees in northern Peru, in the high Amazon.

Why Peru? The region of San Martin, Peru was originally covered with tropical forests and wetlands. Approximately 1.6 million hectares of primary forest have been cut down over the last fifty years.

Restoring patches of the forest will help:

- Restore the eroded biodiversity of this Amazonian region by giving various mammals and reptiles new shelters.
- Improve the food security and incomes of local communities, through the harvesting of fruit, wood, and rubber from the planted trees.
- Protect underlying food crops from too much sunshine or heavy rainfall by providing shade during the dry season and protective cover during the rainy season.
- Fight global warming thanks to the CO2 stored in the wood while regulating local temperatures and generating rainfall benefitting a wider variety of agricultural crops.
- Raise local awareness of the need and value in protecting trees in their area.

Forests are awesome!

Forests are an integral part of a healthy and sustainable future. They not only help the climate, but they are also great for biodiversity too.

Let’s Mark the Next Generation together with Reforest’Action!
