PrintReleaf creates a global sustainability standard by certifiably guaranteeing to releaf the paper consumption used during the production of a printed piece. PrintReleaf is the only technology platform that measures customers' paper usage and certifiably reforests that usage on an equivalent basis.

The graphic below is updated monthly and shows the cumulative total of Carbon Graphics' actual paper used and equivalent trees planted.

How It Works

Print

Step 1

We Measure Your Print Job.

With every print job, we measure your company’s paper consumption, calculating your forest impact. These totals are sent to the PrintReleaf system.

Sapling

Step 2

Trees Are Planted

100% of your paper consumption is certifiably reforested at a planting site of your choice.

Trees

Step 3

Tree Survival is Monitored – For 8 Years!

Over the next eight years, a third-party firm, SGS International, performs an audit to verify 100% net survivability of your trees.

Print with Carbon Graphics, Plant Trees

Every print project produced by Carbon Graphics is measured for paper consumption. The number of trees that were harvested to produce that paper is calculated. The identical number of trees is then reforested under the guidance of PrintReleaf at planting sites around the world. This global effort restores and protects native ecologies and animal habitats, while providing much-needed jobs for people local to these sites. Importantly, all reforestation efforts are monitored and certified by a third-party auditor. 

Your print projects with Carbon Graphics Group are having a positive impact on our forests.

Additionally, each Carbon Graphics customer has the option to track their individual reforestation impact on the PrintReleaf website. You can use that information to support your own sustainability programs.
