Being Environmentally Friendly is Part of Our Culture

Sustainable Business Practices

Katun strives to adhere to sustainable business practices. We actively participate in the circular economy – by selling remanufactured, recycled or refilled imaging supplies and machines that provide our dealer and distributor customers with high quality, cost-effective replacement parts. We pioneered the way by introducing the refilled-OEM cartridge concept in 2008 and have gone on to introduce several more versions for various applications, saving an abundance of plastic waste from landfill. Katun also makes every effort to offer eco-friendly options across services and programs to allow customers to make “green” choices.

Throughout the years in business, Katun have always looked to sustainable initiatives and ways to contribute to the environment. Being environmentally friendly is part of our culture. We believe that for people and organizations to prosper, we must protect the environment first, as a planet and a healthy community go hand-in-hand.

Environmental Policies and Compliance

When it comes to the environment, Katun’s policy is to “do the right thing.” It applies to our local and global communities, especially in the safety of our products and how we treat the environment. Katun is committed to doing the right thing in our overall approach, and in our compliance with environmental and safety directives from the governments where we do business.

Environmental Protection is part of Katun’s Day-to-Day Operations.

  • We conduct our worldwide business in an environmentally responsible manner.
  • We encourage reuse and recycling of packaging material.
  • We refurbish drum unit and imaging unit cartridges.
  • We encourage recycling and proper disposal of used products in accordance with local environmental waste rules and regulations.

  • We pioneered worldwide used drum return programs more than two decades ago.
  • We integrate environmental management into our decision-making processes and improve our practices continuously.

Product Recycling and The Circular Economy

Katun actively participates in the circular economy – by selling remanufactured or refurbished products and products made with recycled content that provide our dealer and distributor customer with high-quality, cost-effective replacement parts.

You can help contribute to the circular economy:

  • Recycle as many used drum cores and toner cartridges as you can.
  • Help minimize the impact on our planet by disposing of waste responsibly and not in landfills.
  • Contribute to the availability of high-quality, cost-saving remanufactured products from Katun for use in printers, copiers and multifunction printers (MFPs).

We greatly encourage our customers to return all of their used cartridges and drum units to our collection partners, so we can keep providing you with remanufactured products for use in a wide range of OEM brands and divert waste from landfill.
