Environmentally focused designs, such as the new, solvent-free Océ CrystalPoint technology underscore Océ - Australia’s green credentials and commitment to solutions that minimise environmental impact.

Océ CrystalPoint technology, developed to deliver high-quality colour, and also black and white output on plain and recycled plan printing paper, emits no ozone, odour, or fine powder.

Due to this new technology, and other initiatives, Climate Action has acknowledged Océ – Australia for doing the right thing in terms of earth-friendly operations and for the sustainability policy that guides the company's actions, which are as follows:

  • Minimising incorrect and unnecessary printing
  • Minimising energy consumption
  • Maximising reuse of materials and minimising non-reusable waste
  • Minimising emissions of ozone, dust and toner

Climate Action is part of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). The UNEP was established in 1973 by the United Nations General Assembly as a result of a recommendation from the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment held in Stockholm in 1972.

Climate Action’s mission is to provide guidance and encourage partnership in caring for the environment by inspiring, informing and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations.

UNEP encourages implementation of policies, strategies and practices that are cleaner and safer, while making efficient use of natural resources.

As the voice of the environment for the United Nations system, UNEP plays a pivotal role in a broad range of activities related to understanding, mitigating, and adapting to climate change.

"We are delighted that Océ has joined the platform to highlight its activities and achievements in mitigating and adapting to climate change," said Climate Action Project Director, Sula Bruce.

"It is essential that Industry leaders such as Océ promote the action steps they have taken to encourage other companies and to follow in their footsteps," added Sula Bruce.
