Strategic Environmental Partners


Shining Earth™ (a division of Delta-Simons) formed a Strategic Alliance with Océ UK in October 2007.

Outline / Scope of Works:

In October 2007, the Alliance launched the much-lauded CarbonPositivePLUS+ initiative for the VarioPrint® 6000 series of duplex printers. As part of the scheme Océ commissioned Shining Earth™ to perform an Environmental Stewardship Appraisal (ESA) at each customer site taking delivery of a VarioPrint® 6000 series machine, at no cost to the customer. The ESA provided a headline assessment of key environmental performance metrics including energy, waste, water, habitat potential, environmental policy, management systems and identified low cost / no cost opportunities to improve performance and save money.

The cumulative total customer savings identified has equated to 650 tonnes of CO2, 25,000m3 of water and over £127,000 per annum.

We have also worked with Océ to deliver innovative green projects with Océ Business Services with customers including Pfizer and other Océ 'Major Accounts' including central and local government.

Shining Earth™ has also provided strategic support to Océ UK and supported its drive towards more sustainable business practices and has performed energy, waste and water audits and implemented improvements which have led to significant cost savings. On a broader remit, Shining Earth™ has provided guidance to Océ in its Venlo HQ and branding summit in Barcelona.

Outcome / Client Benefits:

The Strategic Alliance has greatly enhanced the environmental credentials of Océ UK; providing a clear 'sustainability' market differentiator whilst aligning Océ with customers and networks on this important agenda. It has also significantly raised Océ UK's 'green profile' in the market place among its peers creating the opportunity for increased sales. The improvements in energy consumption resulting from Shining Earth™ audits have also saved the company a significant amount of money resulting in a healthier bottom line business performance year-on-year.
