BRAMPTON, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DATA Communications Management Corp. (TSX: DCM) (OTCQX: DCMDF) (“DCM” or the "Company"), a provider of marketing and business communication solutions to companies across North America, is thrilled to announce it has reached a major milestone in its year-long partnership with PrintReleaf: more than 500,000 trees planted at reforestation projects around the world. DCM is incredibly proud to be hitting this target after just one year in the program. The PrintReleaf initiative is part of a comprehensive ESG strategy the company has put in place to reduce its environmental impact and improve sustainability for years to come.
PrintReleaf offers its partners a patented software platform that measures paper consumption in real time, calculates how many trees were harvested to produce that paper, and automatically replants the exact number of trees at global reforestation projects. Since joining the program on October 25, 2021, DCM has driven the replanting of 522,471 trees at sites in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Madagascar, and the Dominican Republic. Based on PrintReleaf’s equivalency calculations, this translates to offsetting the consumption of more than 43 million pounds of paper.
“This is a significant and very proud moment for us,” says Richard Kellam, President & CEO of DCM. “One year ago we were just kicking off this partnership, and now we’ve already reached over 500,000 trees planted. We’re fully committed to reducing our environmental footprint and PrintReleaf is helping us—and our clients—do that in a very real and concrete way. It’s incredibly exciting and we can’t wait to see what we achieve in 2023.”
“Working with DCM has allowed us to create incredible impact given their size and scale,” says Jordan Darragh, founder and CEO of PrintReleaf. “There is now a whole suite of major brands across Canada who can confidently say their supply chain is more sustainable than it was a year ago, thanks to DCM. It’s crucial for big industry players like DCM to take the lead, and we’re excited to be supporting their ESG and sustainability efforts.”
