Toshiba Improves Its Environmental Footprint; Releases Erasable Toner

Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) released a multifunction printer with an erasable toner, enabling the reuse of paper. The company claims the product can help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 57%, which was validated by the British Standards Institute, a global national standards organization.

Further, TABS said it will continue to offer customers free toner recycling through its zero-waste-to-landfill toner partnership with Close the Loop and   announced that it accepts its own toner and any other brand of spent toner cartridges.

Toshiba Medical Systems UK (TMSUK) reports it has reduced its paper waste by 18 metric tons since 2006 and its electricity use to 63,145 kilowatt hours in fiscal year 2011-12, a 55 percent cut from five years before. And TMSUK reduced CO2 emissions from the company’s car fleet by more than 15%, between 2007 and 2010.

TMSUK claims the reduction in electricity is one of several steps in achieving zero waste to landfill by the end of 2014 and it has reduced energy usage at its UK headquarters in Crawley, West Sussex.
