Develop Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Plan
Description of Action: 
Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) program Market leaders know their choice of wood, paper and packaging products has a direct impact on forests and communities at home and around the world – today and into the future. That’s why Metrofuser includes forest certification in our procurement policies. The SFI program's unique fiber sourcing requirements promote responsible forest management on all suppliers' lands. SFI chain-of-custody (COC) certification tracks the percentage of fiber from certified forests, certified sourcing and post-consumer recycled content. SFI on-product labels identify both certified sourcing and COC claims to help consumers make responsible purchasing decisions.

Waste Recycling
Description of Action: 
At metrofuser we take our responsibility as stewards of the environment seriously. We support programs that Recycle through Remanufacturing. Metrofuser proactively collects and even purchases defective and end-of-life office machines and their components. Metrofuser feeds these assets into a comprehensive remanufacturing program, where they are rebuilt to a “like-new” state. Because we understand that for our business to thrive, the world in which we operate must thrive. Metrofuser’s Whole Business Model is Based on Recycling and Reuse Metrofuser reclaims, remanufactures then resells end of life components from office imaging machines such as laser printers and copiers. Our business model is designed around acquiring these assets which are otherwise destined for landfills and stripping components such as electronic boards, mechanical and electrical components from them. Once these components are removed, Metrofuser carefully remanufactures them to reintroduce the newly remanufactured part into the office IT ecosystem. Most of the components of these machines can be reused and reintroduced back into the ecosystem up to a half-dozen times. The residual effect of that alone significantly reduces the amount of electronic office equipment waste filling our landfills daily.
