We put green back into your bottom line and the environment.
Being “green” isn't only about environmental stewardship – it's also usually good for your business (read Green Printing Is Good for the Bottom Line to learn more about this). Smarter use of paper. Automating business processes. Using printing rules to limit printing to only what is really needed. These are all steps that are environmentally friendly while improving your business' workflows, efficiency, and help save money.
Remember that the costs of managing digital copiers, printers, and fax machines (supplies, internal IT support, maintenance) consume up to 3% of a company's revenues. Here are a few statistics that show how much NOT being green can cost you:
- Paper is the leading source of waste in the office. In fact, the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper a year—that’s approximately 1.2 trees. Environmental Protection Agency Study
- A Fortune 500 company could save 800 tons of paper in a year by setting duplex printing as a default—at an annual savings of $7.7M. Internal HP Case Study
- The average employee’s printing costs companies $600 to $1,300 per year, with a substantial portion of that cost going to pages employees never even intended to print. (GreenPrint Study)
- Of company energy expenditure on nights and weekends, 66% of that is because IT equipment is not being turned down to the lowest possible energy-saving level. Department of Energy Study
