Today, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a true marker of a company's commitment to the environment.
Taking responsible action that considers societal or environmental impact in the running of your company can prove to be an asset for your corporate strategy. There are a lot of actions that can be easily implemented: labelling, ecological certification, waste treatment and recycling, etc. It is recommended that you sustainably manage your company's resources by promoting the circular economy.
There are sustainable solutions on offer nowadays that provide greener alternatives and solutions that recover the resources used in printing. Does your company want to get involved in CSR, but you don’t know how to make your printing equipment more "environmentally responsible"?
Here are the 5 reasons to get in touch with Armor:
We provide services that are essential to the performance of your business. We can ensure a healthier working environment.
1) Choose environmentally friendly printing alternatives
The printer cartridge is a product that produces a lot of pollution, but it can also be recycled up to 7 times. We recommend that you use remanufactured printer cartridges: A remanufactured cartridge is collected, cleaned and re-sold. These cartridges work just as well as OEM cartridges. And they have the added benefit of being more environmentally friendly! Their production consumes less energy than would be needed to manufacture a new cartridge. Discover our remanufactured OWA range.
2) Choose to recycle
Get something back from your printer cartridges by recycling them. Get free OWA collection boxes for your company. This will allow you to get your employees on board with an environmentally responsible approach. It is good to roll out a strategy, but it is even better to get your employees involved in it!

3) Obtain concrete proof of your company's commitment
The Materials Audit (add link to materials audit page) is a document certifying all the data relating to the OWA collection service that establishes exactly what happens to the used cartridges collected from your company premises.
The Materials Audit is a customised report that presents quantified details about your environmental impact, which you can then use in your CSR reports! In this report you will find: - How the collected material has been processed:
Along with the number of remanufactured or recycled cartridges and their weight, the breakdown of materials recovered as secondary raw materials and for non-reusable and dismantled cartridges. - An assessment of the reduced impact in terms of CO2 emissions: This data will enable you to prove the things that you have done to promote sustainable development, and these figures can then be used in your communications.
4) Our OWA packaging is environmentally friendly
At Armor Office Printing, everything is eco-friendly, right down to the box. Our packaging is environmentally responsible. Inside the container, the cartridge is packaged in 100% recyclable cardboard boxes that are eco-friendly. The boxes have been designated for subsequent conversion into storage boxes.
5) Avoid greenwashing
What is Greenwashing? This is a marketing technique that makes false use of ecological and environmental themes.
To avoid being accused of greenwashing, it is best to rely on figures that can prove the actions you have taken that are environmentally responsible. Give evidence and point to facts, specifically using the Materials Audit.
