How Managed Print Services Can Help Reduce Your Environmental Impact
Are you practicing sustainability in your office? Do you recycle? Small changes in the way you conduct your day-to-day business can have a big impact on the world around us, and can work to lower your costs at the same time!
Your office print environment is one area where small changes today can mean big savings far into the future. Let’s look at some scary statistics:
- The average office work prints 34 pages every day.
- 17% of those pages never get used!
- 60-80% of all print cartridges end up in the landfill, where they can take 450 years to decompose.
- 45% of pages printed in the typical office end up in the trash by the end of the day.
There are a number of small, simple, steps you can take to optimize your office print environment, lower your costs, and at the same time reduce your company’s environmental impact. Just putting in a recycling bin in an office has been shown to decrease paper use. Using the most efficient device in your office, defaulting your printer to print two-sided black and white, and controlling printer output are just a few examples of small changes with a big impact.
Implementing a Managed Print strategy that includes recycling used print cartridges, monitoring employees print habits and eliminating inefficient printers are all effective strategies that will make your office greener.
