Griffith University is one of Queensland’s premier tertiary education institutions. Established in 1971, it services 30,000 students across five campuses and offers a multitude of academic disciplines.
A commitment to environmental responsibility and waste reduction programmes led to Griffith University’s decision to appoint Ricoh as its office equipment supplier in 2004.
By replacing their fleet of outdated analogue printers and photocopiers with Ricoh multifunction devices, we were able to assist Griffith University to realise their goals to reduce power consumption with our Quick Start Up (QSU) energy saving technology and reduce paper consumption through the duplexing of network printing.
Griffith University’s implementation of our Consumables Recycling Program throughout all five campuses demonstrates their commitment to the goal of reducing electronic waste.
Recognising a strong synergy between our environmental objectives and those of Griffith University inducting them as a Green Partner was a natural progression in our ongoing relationship. As a result of the replenishment of their fleet in subsequent years, Griffith University is now an active participant in our Machine Takeback Program as well.
Ricoh and Griffith University continue to work together to promote product stewardship, responsible reuse, recycling and good corporate citizenship.
