TOKYO, December 21, 2009 — Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. and Fuji Xerox InterField Co., Ltd. have developed 100%-recycled copy/printer paper GR100 with ISO brightness of 70 percent, which complies with the Law on Promotion Green Purchasing (Green Purchasing Law)Note 1. The product will be released on January 12, 2010.
In response to growing consumer awareness on environmentally-conscious products, the companies have developed GR100 based on Fuji Xerox's Environmental, Health and Safety Requirements for Paper ProcurementNote 2. The new paper product will stay compliant with the Green Purchasing Law from FY2010 onwards with the composite rating of 85Note 3 under the evaluation criteria defined in the Law.
Packaging is made of non-laminated recyclable moisture-resistant paper. The cartons for GR100 do not require packing tape or cardboard padding, except in a few sizesNote 4, thereby saving on resources.
Following the January 2008 discovery of discrepancy between the label-stated and actual ratios of recycled pulp used in copy/printer paper, Fuji Xerox has been auditing paper manufacturers' facilities to ensure the recycled pulp content as well as product quality if the paper runs efficiently and reliably on the company's printers and copy machines. These activities have given the all clear to the introduction of paper product made from 100 percent post-consumer waste, resulting in the manufacturing and marketing launch of GR100 under the Fuji Xerox brand.
Fuji Xerox will continue to support customers who promote green procurement.
