RISO chosen as UN climate conference partner
The French subsidiary of RISO KAGAKU CORPORATION, RISO France SA, has been chosen as an official partner at the COP21 climate conference taking place in France in November.
The stunning environmental credentials of RISO inkjet solutions were the reason the company was picked as the trusted, sole supplier for the print room of the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21).
Eight high-speed ComColors, with a mix of accessories including offset staplers and high capacity stackers, will be available to print up to around three million pages of contracts, treaties and draft documents during the course of the event, taking place between November 30th and December 11th.
Fabrice Sposito, Managing Director of RISO France commented “We are delighted, proud and very honoured to have been chosen to provide the printers that will carry out the very important communications task.”
“Once the organisers knew about our commitment to developing reliable, eco-friendly devices that do not cost the earth in any way, they put their trust in RISO.”
And Fabrice added: “COP21 is a worldwide conference, the largest of its kind hosted in France, that will be the focus for everyone involved in climate change issues and RISO is excited to be playing its part.”
Organisers hope that it “will, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, aim to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below two degrees C”.
RISO is fully committed to delivering on its promise of promoting a cleaner earth and that commitment is apparent at every level of the organisation. RISO invests heavily in R&D, with a large part of development work focused on environmental improvement.
The technology developed for the ComColor Series has been created based on Life Cycle Assessments, which has seen CO2 rates reduced by more than 30 per cent compared with previous models.
Due to the unique, eco-friendly cold printing technology, less electricity is required, which reduces the impact on the environment.
And, unlike toner-based printers, RISO inkjet printers have no harmful emissions, which is kinder to the environment and leads to more comfortable working conditions.
Tatsuo Murakami, Managing Director of RISO UK, commented: “RISO products are already environmental class leaders and for this to be recognised for such a significant role at COP21 is a proud moment for the company.”
