Océ Announces Green Reprographer of Year
Océ, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management, announced that ARC-Southern California is the winner of its fourth annual "Green Reprographer of the Year" award.
Océ presented the award during the IRgA 2011 Convention and Trade Show, held this week in Las Vegas.
"We are proud to congratulate ARC-Southern California as this year's 'Green Reprographer of the Year'," said Patrick Chapuis, President, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. "The company has made outstanding strides to implement environmentally sound business practices internally, while assisting its customers to meet their own sustainability goals."
An independent panel of judges, including Denise Gustavson, editor, Wide Format Imaging; Robert Cassidy, editorial director, Building Design + Construction and Ed Avis, principal of Ed Avis Associates, selected ARC-Southern California as the winner based on its innovative and comprehensive approach to promoting sustainability company-wide.
Each year, the judges select the winner from a pool of qualified entrants who submit online applications via Océ's website. Applicants outline their achievements in the area of green business practices and highlight how these efforts have assisted their customers to meet their own sustainability goals.
According to Robert Cassidy, "I was impressed with this year's entries; they were all worthy of recognition. ARC-Southern California stood out for many reasons, most of all its ability to spread recycling efforts to clients and the company's clever re-routing of its delivery system, which resulted in dramatic fuel consumption savings."
