Staff at Romsey based printer and copier specialists; Allied Office Machines were “in the dark” in support of the United Nations World Environment Day. Their day with the lights out was organised in conjunction with their major suppliers, Ricoh.
Steve Drayson, Allied Office Machines’ Managing Director said: “Ricoh are running a whole month of environmental action and activities in support of the UN World Environment Day and we were very keen to join in. They (Ricoh) are raising awareness of energy conservation by switching off illuminated advertising signs and the night lighting at their offices across the world. You may also have seen or heard about their Eco Billboard in London which is powered entirely by its own solar and wind energy sources”.
Regarding Allied Office Machines own day in the dark Steve said: “As well as lighting we also looked to switch off as many of our business machines as possible. This made demonstrating our range of printers a little tricky, but it was just for the day and was worth it to help get the message across.”
