In an age where every business – and indeed every industry – is encouraged to look inward and contemplate on how to make positive environmental change, printing practices are far from exempt.
While every office has a printing solution, not every office optimises its management.
Business owners and office managerial staff are clearly more focused on the most pertinent day-to-day factors – employees and suppliers, revenue and accounting, clients and customers ... who has time to worry about printing?
The truth is that printing inefficiencies cost not only the environment but also the bottom line.
By considering a managed print solution, any business stands to lessen their associated carbon and chemical waste footprints – and their outgoing monthly printing costs.
Printing can be a dirty business
While recycling and alternative resourcing practices have made tremendous impacts on making printing consumables more environmentally friendly, the fact is that every resource has an associated cost.
Toners, inks, replaceable electronic and mechanical parts all result in chemical emissions from the factory, at the very beginning of the production chain, far before delivery to your office.
There is a culture of using electronic devices – including printers – to the end point of their useful life then junking them, with many destined for landfill. And then there are the associated energy costs.
In a world where electricity prices are ever increasing, and the relationship between the power consumption/ production cycle and the effects on carbon emissions have never been more topical.
Put simply running any electrical appliance that is not optimised to reduce power consumption makes little sense.
Scope for a cleaner, greener, leaner way ...
