  • Assuring the measurement of environmental impact
  • Gain a competitive advantage in supply chain design
  • Increase new business opportunities
  • Increase stakeholder and customer trust

This accreditation sits alongside the ISO 9001 accreditation and gives existing and prospective customers the confidence and assurance that Managed Technology is working ethically and in compliance.

More green initiatives with Managed Technology

Managed Technology is a carbon-neutral Toshiba partner, working together with customers to provide Managed Print solutions that eliminate CO2 emissions through offsetting schemes across the globe. The projects include:

African Energy Efficient Stoves

This project supplies energy-saving cooking stoves to villages in Kenya, which result in a reduction in the usage of firewood by up to 50%. The stoves, therefore, yield a saving in timber use, carbon emissions, smoke, time and cost, improving the lives of the host communities.

Kenyan Mangrove Reforestation

By replenishing lost or destroyed mangrove forests along the Mombasa Estuary this project helps to re-develop valuable eco-systems both on and off-shore. As well as mitigating considerable levels of CO2, the forests provide a valuable source of income to locals.

Ugandan Borehole Rehabilitation

By renovating and repairing boreholes in remote villages across Uganda, this project helps to restore a safe clean source of drinking water for families. As well as the natural health benefits, not having to boil the water, reduces the amount of firewood consumed and creates a carbon reduction.

Brazilian Forestry Project

Actively protecting over 71,714 hectares of Amazon Rainforest through educating locals and patrols, the Brazilian Forestry project enables the rainforest to continue to act like a sponge absorbing CO2 and protecting wildlife.
