Taking all the complexity out of digital colour standards. Now any print service provider investing in digital colour for the first time can swiftly find a standard, manage it and demonstrate it to customers. Setting up colour profiles is straightforward: you only need to set a standard up once. This helps with re-prints, re-running jobs that error and managing digital colour across more than one machine, from one single point of control.

Ricoh Carbon Balanced Printing Programme

A growing number of print service providers are actively looking to differentiate themselves by extending their environmental credentials and applying for certifications such as CSR, ISO 14001, FSC and PEFC. Ricoh's Carbon Balanced Printing Programme enables you to calculate the carbon footprint of each print job, reduce or optimise it wherever possible and, finally, to off set any remaining, unavoidable emissions.

The Ricoh Carbon Balanced Printing Programme has been verified by the British Standards Institution (BSI). As a result you can guarantee that your customers' printed materials are carbon-neutral and environmentally responsible.

The programme has three steps to analyse, optimise and neutralise your carbon emissions.

  1. Analyse your current carbon emissions
  2. Optimise your carbon footprint
  3. Neutralise your remaining and unavoidable carbon emissions

As a participant in the Carbon Balanced Printing Programme you can differentiate yourself as an environmentally responsible business by being certified as an official 'Ricoh Carbon Balanced Printer'.
