    OEM’s GIANT PUSH FOR EMPTIES WITH
    JAPAN POST & U.N.E.P.

    Brother,
    Canon, Dell, Epson, HP Japan, and Lexmark to kick off support for UNEP
    Brother,
    Canon, Dell, Epson, HP Japan and Lexmark announced on March 23 that, as
    part of their Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project, a collaborative effort
    to collect used consumer ink cartridges, the six companies would begin
    making donations to the United Nations Environment Programme on April 1,
    2010. “The Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project, launched in April 2008, is
    a cooperative effort by six print device manufacturers and the Japan
    Post Group to collect used ink cartridges. The project was started with
    the belief that companies marketing inkjet printers have a social
    responsibility to recycle used ink cartridges and should work towards
    the creation of a recycling-based society through conservation efforts,”
    Canon informs.

    Representing a new facet of the Ink Cartridge
    Homecoming Project, the six companies will provide UNEP with donations
    to support its various activities targeting such global environmental
    issues as global warming, climate change, threats to biodiversity, and
    the efficient use of resources. By providing indirect assistance to UNEP
    activities, including forest protection and biodiversity conservation,
    the project will attain a higher level of social significance and take
    an increasingly active approach in global environmental protection.
     
    Every
    six months, the Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project will make a donation
    to UNEP of three yen for every ink cartridge returned to any of the ink
    cartridge collection boxes installed at 3,639 major post offices and
    select local government offices across Japan. The first donation period
    will run from October 2009 to March 2010, with subsequent donations to
    be made every six months thereafter.

    The six companies would like
    to ask its customers to help promote ink cartridge collection and
    recycling in an effort to contribute to society through donations to
    support UNEP’s environmental conservation activities.The Ink Cartridge
    Homecoming Project’s UNEP donation activities will be featured at the
    Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project booth during the Interactive Fair for
    Biodiversity, which will be held concurrently with the 10th Conference
    of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP10) in
    Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, from October 11 to 29, 2010.This marks
    the first time for the private sector in Japan to contribute to
    environmental conservation activities in the Asia-Pacific region through
    donations to UNEP, an indication of UNEP’s strong support for the
    project’s cause and content.
