"Oce Business Services is one of the leading document process outsourcing vendors that made the grade as a good steward of the environment with significant implemented ecological commitments and dedication to environmental responsibility," said Scott Wilson, partner, Brown-Wilson Group and co-author, The Black Book of Outsourcing.
"Despite a challenging economy, many executives surveyed indicate that eco-friendly practices are an important part of their overall business strategy and that finding green outsourcing partners continues to be a key priority."
Oce clients concerned about the environment, such as Bremer Financial Services, are acknowledging the company's efforts. "We implemented a green campaign as a joint effort between the Bremer Facilities Group and Oce Business Services to reduce paper usage," notes Dolores Hoffman, supervisor of administrative services and facilities management for Bremer Facilities Department. "Through initiatives such as moving print production to copiers that can print on both sides of a page, we have significantly reduced paper consumption and realized thousands of dollars in cost savings."
Oce Business Services' corporate parent also underscores its leadership in environmental sustainability with its annual Sustainability Report. The report documents Oce achievements in delivering sustainable technology and environmentally sound policies. The report, which explains the company's use and re-use of components, energy and water consumption, waste handling emissions, and human and environmental safety, is available at http://www.sustainability.oce.com.
The Black Book of Outsourcing (Wiley Publishers) is the internationally bestselling business book and outsourcing resource manual written by co-authors Doug Brown and Scott Wilson, also managing partners of the Brown-Wilson Group. Brown-Wilson's annual Green Report solicits information from more than 120,000 global outsourcing users, decision makers, analysts, employees and customers to compile the industry's only independent and unbiased ranking of the most notable and environmentally-friendly outsourcing provider organizational performances.
