The PrintReleaf Exchange [PRX] is a patented software platform that empowers businesses to sustain and grow our global forestry system…one print job at a time.
Gilson partnered with PrintReleaf in June 2023 as part of an ongoing need for sustainability options for our customers. All applicable print jobs (paper/corrugate based) can now be estimated via PrintReleaf, allowing customers to choose to offset their paper usage through reforestation.
Gilson customers who have sustainability goals will be pleased to know they now have an avenue to be connected with a network of reforestation projects, which allows them to reduce their organization’s environmental impact by automatically planting trees where the planet needs them most–all through PrintReleaf’s robust online dashboard.
Through PrintReleaf, paper consumption is measured and trees are automatically reforested across our global network of certified reforestation projects to continually offset a customer’s environmental impact.
PrintReleaf guarantees every sheet of paper a customer consumes will be reforested at a rate of 8,333 sheets of standard letter (8.5 × 11″ 20lb paper) or 37.16kg per tree (40ft height × 7in width or 12.192m × 0.1778m).
This open-source formula is widely and generally accepted as the industry standard as established by the Environmental Paper Network. The Environmental Paper Network is a coalition of over one hundred global organizations including the Environmental Defense Fund and the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
PrintReleaf certifies the reforestation of each customer’s forest footprint according to the measurement and calculations defined in the PrintReleaf Standard.
When their forest footprint is reforested, customers are issued certificates for trees planted at reforestation projects of their choice.
These certificates serve as living documents which are automatically updated when the trees are planted, audited, and verified survived over an eight year timeline.
