Going green isn't just a trendy catchphrase; for many companies, it's also a successful way to reduce costs. One of the easiest places to start your green initiative is with your copiers and printers. Read on to find out how your office equipment can make a difference for the planet and your bottom line.
More for Less
Green solutions are everywhere in today's office equipment choices. Here's how your choices can reduce both your carbon footprint and your power bill.
1. Consolidate your devices.
Multifunction printers and copiers can reduce your office equipment needs. By combining the functions of four isolated technologies, a multifunction system is a green alternative to an office full of single-function printers, copiers, scanners, and fax machines. You'll need less energy for one device, and reduce the environmental impact caused by manufacturing, packaging, delivering and recycling a fleet of others. And fewer devices means fewer supplies and parts requirements.
2. Use less energy.
Today's copiers and printers use far less energy than their predecessors, and Energy Star ratings help buyers know just what they're getting. With solutions like sleep modes and fast warm-up times, Energy Star rated equipment is a green alternative your office can feel right about using.
3. Use less paper and toner.
Green printers and copiers also offer solutions to reduce paper and toner usage.
- Automatic duplexing, or two-sided printing, can cut paper consumption in half.
- Draft modes reduce toner usage.
- Pull printing and print tracking can help reduce unclaimed documents and unnecessary printing.
