Eco-positive printing

PaperCut, the popular print management solution, has joined the Forest Positive movement with the launch of a new sustainability and tree-planting program, PaperCut Grows. This enables PaperCut users to turn their printing into an environmental positive by mitigating any environmental impact and then planting additional trees to help restore the planet’s natural resources. Available with PaperCut MF and PaperCut Hive, PaperCut Grows handles all calculations and conversions and gives users real-time visibility of print tracking and tree-planting volumes through a dashboard. PaperCut EMEA Regional Director Steve Holmes said: “By joining the Forest Positive movement and introducing PaperCut Grows, we’ve made it even easier for customers to take easy, positive and measurable steps to give back to the environment.” www.papercut.com
