Taking a bite of the (green) apple

TOSHIBA have been honoured as International Green World Ambassadors at a special ceremony on Monday August 8, 2016 at The Crystal, London Docklands – regarded as the most sustainable events venue in the UK.

This recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of their e-STUDIO 306LP MFP Project which won a Green Apple Environment Award, presented at Westminster Palace in November last year.

As a result of that success, they are having their winning paper published in The Green Book, the world’s only annual work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by The Green Organisation.

The award judges commented: “Toshiba’s new eco-friendly printing system has the potential to reduce global paper use for printed documents by up to 80%. The system is another of those simple genius concepts that seem obvious once invented - their new range of eco-printers include an eraser drum that clears paper of toner inks giving at least 5 chances to reuse the same piece of paper over and over again.”

The winning paper now goes forward for further judging and entry into The Green World Awards for the Environment; the campaign to find the “greenest” organisation in the world.

This presentation takes place in Seoul, South Korea in October.
