It’s never too early to start thinking about New Year’s resolutions. A common New Year’s resolution is to implement more environmentally friendly practices into your everyday life—and hopefully, in the workplace as well. For some this might mean not using any pesticides in your home garden. Others still might aim to carry a reusable bag with them when going grocery shopping. The decisions we make in our everyday lives have an impact on our greater environment, empowering us to make a difference around the issues that are important to us.
If you are looking for an easy way to be more environmentally conscious, you might consider implementing a managed print services program in your office. Managed print services is a method to optimize printing in the workplace by getting a comprehensive analysis of your office’s printing habits and using the results of this analysis to implement a printing strategy. There are several ways in which having a managed print strategy in place is environmentally friendly.
First, managed print services involve creating a high-efficiency workplace environment, which means using high-efficiency machines. In using high-efficiency machines, you are not wasting energy. Hence, you reduce power consumption, and ultimately, your carbon footprint.
Second, have you ever taken the time to go through your recycling bin and see how much paper has been wasted? Managed print services eliminates this problem by ensuring that you’re printing only what you need to and not wasting excess paper. Using less paper overall means that fewer trees have to be cut down.
Managed print services also ensures that fewer supplies are consumed, resulting in less waste and less supply deliveries.
